UHV Baseball Slugger Earns Red River Honor

Posted: Updated:

Coming off another stellar week where he tied the UHV all-time career home run mark, Andrew Gross has been named the Red River Athletic Conference Baseball Player of the Week for April 24-30.

Gross tied the all-time UHV record for home runs in a career in his final games as a Jaguar. The 6-foot-2 first baseman belted four home runs last week to drive his total to 38. He is tied with David Baker, who accomplished the feat in four years while it only took two seasons for Gross.

On Tuesday, Gross blasted two dingers and drove in six runs to lead the Jaguars to a 14-12 win over NCAA Division II opponent, St. Mary's University (Texas). The native of Alvin, then opened a four-game series against Our Lady of the Lake University (Texas) with a homer and three RBIs as UHV lost, 9-7. Gross tacked on a solo blast in the third game of the series and wrapped up the week with 11 RBIs while going 11-for-18 at the plate. He also scored seven runs and walked five times.

In conference play this season, the basher was walked 29 times including 10 intentional passes. Gross finished the season as the conference leader in home runs for the second consecutive year with 16. The Jaguars narrowly missed the RRAC tournament with a 13-14 conference record and a mark of 21-24 on the season.
