E-W grad Owen Jones named First Team All-American

Owen Jones

Congratulations to former Edmonds-Woodway High School pitcher Owen Jones, who has been named a summer collegiate baseball First Team All-American by Perfect Game CrossChecker. Only four pitchers in the country were named to the All-American First Team. Jones played for the Wenatchee AppleSox.

The University of Portland junior went 7-1 with a 2.00 ERA for the AppleSox this summer. Jones etched his name in the West Coast League record books, setting a new WCL record for wins in a single season.

Jones previously played in Wenatchee after his freshman year in 2008. He was one of the most consistent pitchers for the AppleSox in 2008, being named All-WCL honorable mention and helping the team reach the WCL Championship Series. He went 3-3 with a 2.72 ERA, the lowest on the team for a starter that season.

Jones was the only WCL player named to the All-American team.  He also happens to be the older brother of Austin “Bubba” Jones, a 2011 E-W grad who was drafted in the seventh round by the New York Yankees and is now playing rookie ball for the Yankees in Florida.
