Coastal’s Paez earns honor as Clemson comes to town

ccubase-paez2Coastal Carolina sophomore shortstop Michael Paez has been named the Big South Choice Hotels Baseball Player of the Week, the league announced today.

Paez led Coastal to a 4-0 record, including a 13-2 win over #11 North Carolina, thanks to his .545 (6-for-11) batting average. He scored four runs and drove in six. However, Paez was helpful in bringing home four additional runs as his four sacrifice bunts spurred leadoff hitter Anthony Marks to score on each occasion. Paez stole two bases, hit a double and a home run for a .909 slugging percentage and added a walk and three hit by pitches for a .625 on-base percentage for the week. Overall, Paez raised his batting average 54 points in the four games to his current season average of .257.

Paez has reached base safely (hit/walk/hit by pitch) in 18 of CCU’s 19 games this season, including each of the first 14 games and in each of the last four contests.

Coastal Carolina will return to action Tuesday by hosting Clemson at 6 pm. While Coastal and Clemson have met on 51 previous occasions, this marks Clemson’s first trip to Coastal’s campus since a two-game series May 10-11, 1994. Clemson has come to the Grand Strand twice since then, but played in Myrtle Beach in 2005 as part of the Baseball at the Beach tournament and in 2007 as top-seeded Coastal hosted an NCAA Regional. Coastal is just 2-7 versus Clemson on campus and 3-9 when hosting the Tigers. Clemson owns a 43-8 all-time advantage in the series.

The Coastal-Clemson game is a near sellout with only standing room tickets available for purchase. For more information, visit: www.goccusports.com/tickets or call (843) 347-8499.

Gates to Springs Brooks Stadium open one hour prior to first pitch – which will be 5 pm on Tuesday. The Teal Lot (between the football and baseball facilities) will be closed during the day Tuesday and will open one-and-a-half (1.5) hours prior to first pitch – which will be 4:30 Tuesday. Once open, the Teal Lot parking spaces are available for free on a first-come basis.

Due to limited parking on CCU’s campus, fans are encouraged to use the new parking lot on Highway 544, east of the TD Sports Complex. A shuttle will run every 15 minutes from the lot and stop at Springs Brooks Stadium. The shuttle will run throughout the day and for one hour after the conclusion of play. Parking in the Hwy 544 Lot and use of the shuttles is free.
