Jensen '15 selected for baseball all-star game
Hamilton College's Joe Jensen '15 (West Windsor, N.J./West Windsor-Plainsboro North HS) will play in the 2014 Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League All-Star Game at Quakertown Memorial Park in Quakertown, Pa., at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 17.
Jensen is playing for the Trenton Generals this summer and he is one of four outfielders selected to represent the league's Kaiser Division in the all-star game. He is ranked fourth in the league in runs scored and fifth in stolen bases as the team's lead-off hitter. The Generals lead the league in victories with a record of 17-8-1.
Jensen was named to the 2014 NESCAC Baseball All-Conference Team back in May. He was a second-team selection in the outfield and was the only Hamilton player to start every game. Jensen led the NESCAC with 23 stolen bases and a .495 on-base percentage. His team-best .398 batting average is third in the conference and he also topped the Continentals in hits (37), runs (23) and walks (16). In three seasons, Jensen has stolen a school-record 54 bases while batting .310 with 61 runs scored and an on-base percentage of .372 in 84 games.
A number of players that competed in the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League since 1970 have gone on to play professional baseball. It is one of eight summer leagues sanctioned by the NCAA and is partially funded by Major League Baseball.
