Jeff Roy Named College Baseball Insider All-AmericanJuly 7, 2012 - New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) North Adams SteepleCats
But Friday, those accolades extended to not just New England, but the nation, as Roy -- the 2012 Atlantic 10 Player of the Year -- was named an honorable mention on College Baseball Insider's 2012 All-America Team.
One of just 23 outfielders from around the country recognized Roy finished the season with a team-best 84 hits and 59 runs while leading the A-10 with a .421 average in conference games (40-95). He also reached base in an A-10 best 41 consecutive games in addition to leading the Rams with 23 infield singles (14 bunts), seven outfield assists, a .487 slugging percentage and a .443 on-base percentage
This summer, Roy continues to be a pure catalyst of the SteepleCat offense. The Cranston, R.I., native leads the squad with a .368 average (28-76) with a team-best 23 runs and nine doubles. The speedster has quickly ascended to the league leader board in stolen bases as well, going 17-for-18 in swiped bags through 20 games and now just needs two stolen bases to tie the single-season record set by John Schultz in 2009.
In addition to his latest recognition from College Baseball Insider, Roy has been tabbed to the NEIBA All-New England First Team and the ECAC Second Team.
