True Freshman Josh Vidales Named C-USA Hitter of the Week

Josh Vidales earns Opening Weekend honor

Feb. 18, 2013

HOUSTON -- After leading Houston Baseball to a series win over Northeastern during Opening Weekend, true freshman Josh Vidales was named Conference USA Hitter of the Week by the league's office, announced Monday.
 

"We are very proud of Josh," head coach Todd Whitting said. "This is a great accomplishment for a true freshman competing in his first weekend of competition at the Division I level."
 
Vidales led the Houston offense with a .500 (6-for-12) average from the leadoff spot.

The LaPorte, Texas native, posted an impressive start to his collegiate career with a 4-for-5 effort, including a double, run scored and RBI in his first collegiate appearance Friday night, helping Houston to a 9-3 win over the Huskies.

Vidales notched a base hit in all three games and drove in two runs in the first two contests. With one out and Houston down 2-1, Vidales helped keep the five-run third inning alive in game one, doubling to right center, later scoring on a bases loaded single.

Along with his superb hitting, Vidales played stellar defense at second base. He did not commit an error with five putouts and 12 assists, including eight assists in game two of the series. He currently leads the team with a .600 on base percentage and is second with a .583 slugging percentage.

Vidales joins Rice's Austin Kubitza and Tulane's Tony Rizzotti as they were named Conference USA Pitchers of the Week.
