UAB's Jones Earns Baseball America Honor

June 22, 2000

BIRMINGHAM -- UAB outfielder Mitch Jones was named to Baseball America's Freshman All-America Third Team Thursday, as the publications released its college baseball postseason honors.

Jones, a native of Birmingham who played high school baseball at Chelsea, hit .338 with nine home runs and 40 RBI for the Blazers in 2000, starting 56 games as a true freshman.

Jones received Second Team All-Conference USA honors and was named to the league's All-Freshman Team following the 2000 season.
