Fisher catching fire in Virginia
Like the weather, Cedar Crest grad Derek Fisher is heating up halfway through his freshman season at the University of Virginia.
following an 0-for-10 start, the 2011 Gatorade Pennsylvania Player of the Year is riding a six-game hitting streak (11-for-27, .407) and has homered in back-to-back games.
on Tuesday, the left-handed DH smashed his first collegiate home run in an 8-5 win against Marist. He followed with a three-run shot to right field in the third inning Wednesday, finishing 2-for-4 with a dinger, a triple and four RBIs in a 10-2 victory over the Red Fox.
Fisher has appeared in 14 of the Cavs’ 17 games this spring (11-5-1) and carries an average of .319 (15-for-47). He also has two doubles and three triples to go with 11 runs and 11 RBIs.
as a senior in South Lebanon, the Rexmont native batted .484 and belted 12 long balls to become the Falcons’ all-time home run king with 24. The Texas Rangers then selected him in the sixth round of the 2011 MLB Draft in April before he elected to head to Charlottesville.
