Nick Fuller Earns LEC Baseball Honors

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Sophomore pitcher Nick Fuller (New Bedford, MA/New Bedford HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth baseball team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Fuller has been named Little East Conference Baseball Pitcher of the Week.

Fuller pitched seven innings and earned the victory at Southern Maine in the second game of Friday's Little East Conference doubleheader. He held the Huskies to three runs on nine hits, walking three and striking out six in becoming just the second pitcher to defeat Southern Maine in conference play this year.

"Nick has improved by leaps and bounds from the beginning of the year," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Bob Prince. "His stuff has improved, as well as the confidence he has on the mound. He is pitching with confidence, and is a true number one."

The Corsairs will return to action when they play Eastern Connecticut State in the Little East Conference playoffs Wednesday at Southern Maine.
