Shenandoah Valley, VA – Florida State baseball players fanned out all over the country after the season ended to start playing summer ball. Seminoles are representing the program in leagues all over America and having great success. Buster Posey came into the week leading the Cape Cod League in hits and another FSU infielder is making a name for himself. Covington infielder and Florida State second baseman Tommy Oravetz garnered Southern Division Player of the Week accolades in the Valley Baseball League this week.
The Florida State freshman led the league with a .500 batting average with 10 hits, nine runs, two doubles, and six RBIs. He was also first in on-base percentage (.667), tied for third in runs, and first in walks (nine). In 26 games, Oravetz is batting .317 with 21 runs, 14 RBIs, and a .513 on-base percentage. His 26 walks for the season rank second in the league and his .513 on-base percentage would lead by a wide margin except he narrowly misses the plate appearances minimum for the category.
