Xavier’s Fulgencio chosen A.I.I. Hitter of the Week
NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana’s Jose Fulgencio was chosen Association of Independent Institutions Hitter of the Week in baseball for March 29-April 4.

XULA is 16-4 this season — winner of 12 of its last 13 games — and Fulgencio is hitting .438 with 14 RBIs, 21 runs and 14 stolen bases in 17 games.

They’ll play at 4:30 p.m. Friday in a nine-inning game, then a noon Saturday doubleheader — two seven-inning games. MUW is 15-5 after splitting a Tuesday home doubleheader with Stillman.
