SHUPirates.com Athlete of the Week (March 1, 2011)
Joe DiRocco, Baseball
Senior pitcher Joe DiRocco was named the BIG EAST Pitcher of the Week for the second time in as many weeks. DiRocco allowed only one run on four hits while striking out four in 6.1 innings of work to help Seton Hall avoid being swept by #24 North Carolina on Sunday afternoon. After the first inning, he did not allow the high-powered Tar Heel offense two baserunners in one frame until the bottom of the sixth.
