University of Toledo outfielder Brad Boss has been named Co-Player of the Week by the Mid-American Conference, the league office announced on Monday.
Boss helped the Rockets to a 3-2 record last week with some stellar hitting. He led the squad with a .400 batting average over the five games and posted a slugging percentage of 1.000 while getting on base at a .625 clip. In his 24 plate appearances over the five games, Boss tallied six hits, five of which went for extra bases, and recorded nine walks.
Boss went 2-for-3 and drove in three runs while walking three times in the 19-8 win over Oakland on April 16. He then registered his first career multi-home run game against Purdue Fort Wayne on April 17. Boss also went 2-for-3 with three runs and two doubles in the 4-3 win over Central Michigan on April 19. He played errorless defense in center field, and he currently ranks in the top five in the MAC in doubles (15) and home runs (6).
A symbol of consistency, Boss has played every game for Toledo since the start of the 2017 season. He currently sits third in program history with 108 career walks and is four away from breaking the all-time record. Boss leads Toledo in batting (.349), home runs (six), RBIs (32), slugging (.572), and on-base percentage (.456) this season and has started every game in center field.
Kent State's Justin Kirby shares the Player of the Week honor with Boss, while Ball State's John Baker was named MAC Pitcher of the Week.
