NORTH BOSTON, N.Y. — Penn State Altoona senior first baseman Catcher Cumming (Altoona, Pennsylvania/Altoona) was named the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference’s (AMCC) Player of the Week in baseball on Monday, April 5.

In game one, the senior first baseman went one-for-two with two runs batted in, two runs scored, and one double. In game two, Cumming was three-for-five with three home runs – including a grand slam – seven RBI, and three runs scored.

Cumming’s three home runs in the second game of the doubleheader set a new Penn State Altoona baseball single game record, representing the most homers hit in a game in program history.

On the week, Cumming hit .571 (four-for-seven) with nine RBI, five runs scored, three home runs, and one double. He posted a .556 on-base percentage, a 2.000 slugging percentage, and was perfect in the field with 15 putouts on 15 total chances.
