 Biographical Information
When Dustin Pedroia was injured in the finale of the 2002 Haarlem Baseball Week, 2B Eric Patterson moved to shortstop for team USA and Weeks moved from the outfield to second base. His performance later in the summer helped scouts realize he could handle 2B full-time. He hit .370/.433/.556 for the club in the 2002 World University Championship and was error-free at second base. Davide Dallospedale made the All-Tournament team instead.
Weeks has a similar batting stance to All-Star outfielder Gary Sheffield. Weeks shakes his bat back and forth pretty fast, but not quite as violently as Sheffield. Weeks has a good bat but he needs some work on his fielding. He is considered one of the top young players in baseball today.
