FILE - In this June 4, 2010, file photo, Florida International baseball player Garrett Wittels extends his hitting streak to 55 games with a sixth inning double during an NCAA college baseball game against Texas A&M in Coral Gables. It was not an easy offseason for the shortstop who got a hit in each of FIU's 56 games last season, putting him within two of matching Robin Ventura's Division I record. He struggled in summer ball and dealt with more attention than he found comfortable. (AP Photo/J Pat Carter, File)
