The Big Ten baseball player of the week has been rotating among Indiana players all season long.
That was the case again Monday when Brad Hartong, a junior college transfer from Cypress (Calif.) College, was honored by the Big Ten. He becomes the seventh different IU player to receive a weekly Big Ten award this season.
All he did was hit .529 with one home run, 10 RBI and a slugging percentage of .765 to help IU go 3-1 for the week. Hartong was 9-of-17 in the four games. Hartong had two hits in three of the games and three hits in the series finale against the Illini on Sunday.
Prior to his breakout week, Hartong had a total of one home run and 12 RBI for the season and had been hitting .247.
