Garrett Wittels, he of the 56-game on-hiatus hitting streak, has been named to American Baseball Coaches Association South Central All-Region First Team (try saying that five times fast).
Wittels, who can play all over the infield, was named to the first team as a second baseman. Wittels led the Golden Panthers with a .412 batting average, and set a school record with 100 hits.
Also honored: outfielder Pablo Bermudez and designated hitter Mike Martinez, who earned second-team nods.
Wittels is two games shy of Robin Ventura's Division I record, and will continue to swing away this summer, playing in an Alaskan amateur league.
