Palumbo named Association of Division III Independents Baseball Player of the Week

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – SUNY Canton junior Francesco Palumbo (Canton, N.Y.) has been named the Association of Division III Independents baseball Player of the Week. Palumbo opened the week with his first collegiate hit after being subbed into the lineup as a defensive replacement in left field. That jumpstarted his weekend as he started in left field in the Roos doubleheader versus No. 24 nationally-ranked St. John Fisher College on Sunday. Overall, the junior finished the weekend 6-for-8 from the plate with a double and scored a pair of runs. In Canton's first contest on Sunday he went a perfect 3-for-3 from the plate scoring twice, while he hit .750 overall on the week in his first week of starting at the varsity level.
