March 6, 2023

SEC Baseball Weekly Honors – March 6, 2023


Pitcher of the Week: Paul Skenes, LSU

LSU’s Paul Skenes improved to 3-0 this season as he defeated Butler on Friday, limiting the opposition to no runs on one hit with no walks and a career-high 13 strikeouts in six innings. He allowed a two-out single in the first inning, then retired 16 straight Butler hitters to complete his outing. Skenes’ 13 strikeouts represented the most by an LSU pitcher since March 2, 2018, when Zack Hess recorded 13 strikeouts against Toledo.


Co-Player of the Week: Wyatt Langford, Florida

Florida’s Wyatt Langford led the team with 24 total bases, 10 hits, four home runs and nine runs scored in five games last week as he helped lead the Gators to a series win against No. 5 Miami. Langford totaled six extra-base hits in 20 at bats and homered twice in the game one win vs. the Hurricanes. He had a pair of hits, including another home run, in the series-clinching win on Sunday. Langford also had a home run vs. Jacksonville on Tuesday.  


Co-Player of the Week: Charlie Condon, Georgia

Georgia’s Charlie Condon batted .588 (10-for-17) with two doubles, three home runs and eight RBI in helping Georgia go 3-1 on the week including a series win over No. 16 Georgia Tech. His highlights included going 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in a 16-6 road win on Saturday to clinch the series. He also had a pair of hits in the series-opening win on Friday, following a four-hit game against Presbyterian on Tuesday.


Freshman of the Week: Colby Shelton, Alabama

Alabama’s Colby Shelton hit five home runs, drove in 12 runs and led his team in nearly every offensive category during the Crimson Tide’s four-game stretch last week. Six of his seven hits went for extra bases, and two of his home runs were grand slams. He homered in three straight games during the UIC series and posted three multi-RBI contests for the week.
