Seth Beer, man.

The former Lambert baseball standout and freshman rightfielder at Clemson was named the national hitter-of-the-month for March by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association on Monday.

Beer continued the remarkable early success of his college career, batting .431 with six doubles, nine home runs, 21 RBIs and slugging 1.000 percent in 17 games for the Tigers.

It’s the second major in-season award for the Suwanee native. Earlier in March, Beer was one of seven national players-of-the-week named by Collegiate Baseball.

Really, he’s been Clemson’s best hitter all season. In 26 games (all starts), Beer leads the Tigers in batting average (.422), home runs (12), RBI (34), on-base percentage (.522) and slugging percentage (.911). He’s second in runs scored (28) and doubles (eight).
