SAN ANTONIO, TX - The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association announced its first National Player of the Month for the 2019 season on Thursday. After a stellar opening month, New Mexico State's Nick Gonzales earned the NCBWA Player of the Month honor.

Gonzales has been red-hot since opening day, leading all three national Triple Crown categories with a .590 batting average, 10 home runs and 37 runs batted in through 13 games. The sophomore also leads the NCAA in runs (28), hits (36), slugging percentage (1.213) and total bases (74).

This impressive start has earned Gonzales the first two Western Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors to begin the season and he was also named the Collegiate Baseball National Player of the Week on Feb. 18. The Vail, Ariz. native has had at least one hit in every game this season and multiple base knocks in 10 of the 13 games. The second baseman has also homered in eight different games, including each of the last four, and he has produced two or more RBI in nine contests this season.

The New Mexico State baseball team looks to keep the momentum rolling when the team welcomes La Salle to Presley Askew Field for a four-game weekend series, March 8-10.
