Catfish, Biscuit players named players of the week

Earlier this week, we mentioned that Columbus Catfish 1B Matt Fields had broken out of a 5-for-50 slump in a big way. Well, it seems that the South Atlantic League noticed, too. The SAL named him player of the week:
The 21-year-old first baseman has homered in each of the past three ballgames, and four of his past five. On Friday, Fields went 3-for-4 with a homer, double, four RBIs and four runs scored as the Catfish routed Savannah, 11-1.

And, up at Double-A, Montgomery Biscuits 3B Evan Longoria picked up Southern League honors:
Longoria currently leads the league in both home runs (17) and RBIs (57). On Tuesday, the 21-year-old's homer lifted the Biscuits to a 1-0 win over Mobile. He had three hits and three RBIs in Montgomery's 7-0 triumph over Mississippi on Sunday.

It's great when players I see on a regular ... or semi-regular ... basis are recognized for their play.
