Moquete Earns D3Baseball.com First Team All-Region Honors
BOSTON, Mass. – For only the second time in program history a member of the UMass Boston baseball team has been named a D3Baseball.com All-Region honoree. This year it was senior outfielder Jamill Moquete (Boston, Mass.), who was named a First Team selection becoming the first player in history to earn the honor. He also becomes the first player in program history to be named both a D3Baseball.com and NEIBA All-Region selection.
The 2014 Little East Conference Co-Player of the Year, Moquete became the program leader in career triples with 11, and also established a new single season record for walks with 41.
Moquete ended his senior campaign with a .333 average, .563 slugging percentage, and .497 on-base percentage. In 135 at-bats, the Boston native finished the year with 45 hits, which included seven doubles, six triples, and four home runs. He also combined for 29 RBI, and finished with a team-best 38 runs scored. His 19 stolen bases would once again lead the Beacons, as he finished his career with 67 which is third most all-time at UMass Boston.
Of the 41 games played this season, Moquete reached base at-least once in an impressive 40 games. He went on to record at-least one hit in 28 games, and had a total of 14 multi-hit games. He would tie the program record for triples in a game (2) in the 16-13 win over Westfield State University on April 3.
