KANSAS CITY, MO. – Iowa Wesleyan College shortstop Edder Morales (Sr.-Barquisimeto, Venezuela) has been named the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) National Baseball Player of the Week, the NAIA announced on Tuesday.
Morales helped Iowa Wesleyan to a 3-0 week with a sweep of Grand View University last week in Midwest Collegiate Conference play. Morales smashed six home runs, including four in the 16-10 win on April 1. The total fell one shy of the NAIA single-game record of five roundtrippers. He finished the series 8-for-13 (.615) with 12 RBIs and eight runs scored.
