Anthony Servideo named a National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball

After a tremendous outing last week, Ole Miss junior shortstop Anthony Servideo has been named a National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball, the organization announced Monday.

Servideo joins Ryan Olenek and Thomas Dillard as the third Rebel to be named a National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball in the last two seasons.

Servideo was 7-for-14 at the plate last week with a slash line of .500/.667/1.143. The Jupiter, Florida, native notched three home runs, scored six runs, tallied seven RBI, walked five times and was 3-for-3 on stolen bases.

Against Alcorn State Wednesday, Servideo scored the walk-off home run in the bottom of the 10th inning that gave the Rebels the 9-8 win. On the night, he went 3-for-5 with three runs scored, two stolen bases and two RBI.

In the weekend series against Xavier, Servideo’s stellar play continued. He went 1-for-3 (with two walks) in Friday’s game; 1-for-3 with a three-run homer to straightaway center in Saturday’s contest; and, 2-for-3 on Sunday, pounding another home run that helped him finish with two runs scored and two RBI.

Servideo matches 2019 home run total

In 2019, Servideo notched four total home runs. In just seven games this season, he has equalled that total.  For the year, he is hitting an even .500 (12-for-24), slugging 1.042 with a .657 on-base percentage. He leads the team with a perfect 4-for-4 stolen base record and is tied for the team lead in runs scored (9), home runs (4) and RBI (10).

Servideo, along with junior first baseman Cael Baker, ranks seventh in the nation and first in the Southeastern Conference in home runs. He’s also ninth nationally and second in the SEC in on-base percentage, 12th in the country and third in the league in slugging percentage and 30th nationally and second in the conference in batting average.
