May 8, 2007

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech shortstop Michael Fisher, injured in last Saturday’s game at the University of South Florida, underwent successful facial surgery to repair fractures in his cheek and orbital bones Monday in his hometown of Nashville.

The shortstop is expected to rejoin the team early next week and could return to the lineup as early as next week’s Florida State series (May 17-19).

Fisher, who suffered the injury while fielding a ground ball that took a bad hop in the ninth inning of the series opener, is hitting .348 on the season and stands in the top three on the team in average, hits (64), doubles (14), total bases (91), stolen bases (7), slugging percentage (.495) and on base percentage (.423). With the injury, he saw his streak of 113-consecutive games started come to an end.
