UCLA Baseball's Casey Haerther Named Pac-10 Player of the Week

March 24, 2009

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Junior infielder Casey Haerther of the UCLA baseball team has earned Pac-10 Player of the Week honors for the first time in his career, as announced Tuesday by the Pac-10 Conference office. Haerther batted .500 (7-for-14) in three games at USC over the weekend, leading UCLA to the series victory.

Haerther belted two home runs against the Trojans, compiling eight RBI and five runs in the Pac-10 series. He went 2-for-6 with a season-high four RBI and two runs in UCLA's 14-4 series-opening victory Saturday afternoon, capping the Bruins' eight-run ninth inning with a grand slam. Haerther went 1-for-4 in a 5-1 loss on Sunday, collecting the team's lone RBI.

Haerther finished the weekend leading UCLA to a 17-2 victory Monday evening. In that game, he posted his best offensive performance of the season to date, going 4-for-4 with a three-run home run, three runs and three RBI. Haerther opened the scoring in the Bruins' six-run third inning with a three-run blast that rocketed past a 100-foot-high support backstop behind the left-field wall.

Through 20 games, Haerther has logged a team-leading 11 multiple-hit efforts. The resident of Chatsworth, Calif., has hit safely in 17 games and has tallied five multiple-RBI contests. An honorable mention All-Pac-10 selection one year ago, Haerther currently leads all Pac-10 players with 33 hits and ranks third in batting average with a .393 mark.

Haerther becomes the second Bruin in as many weeks to capture Pac-10 Player of the Week honors. Senior Cody Decker earned the weekly honor on March 17 after having belted four home runs and totaled 10 RBI in five games the previous week.
