Shaeffer Hall Earns Another National Honor
Feb. 25, 2009
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. –
Kansas junior pitcher Shaeffer Hall has been named the National Player of the Week by collegebaseballinsider.com for the week of Feb. 24. This marks the fourth national player of the week honor that Hall has recorded.
Hall, a junior from Lee’s Summit, Mo., tossed the fifth complete game no hitter in Kansas baseball history on Feb. 20, blanking Air Force, 5-0. The 6-foot lefty went nine innings and allowed no runs and no hits with three walks and seven strikeouts. After walking the first batter of the game, Hall retired the next 17 Falcons he faced. His performance was also the first complete game shutout by a Jayhawk since Kodiak Quick blanked Hawaii-Hilo in 2005.
He has also been named the National Pitcher of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writer’s Association and thecollegebaseballblog.com as well as a national player of the week by Louisville Slugger. He was also named the Big 12’s Pitcher of the Week on Monday.
Hall and the Jayhawks (2-2) will face 21st-ranked Arkansas this afternoon at Baum Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 3:05 p.m. The game can be heard via audio webcast on kuathletics.com.
