Roy Earns Preseason All-American Honor

URI junior center fielder Jeff Roy was selected as a Preseason All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association in December. Roy is the first Ram ever to earn preseason All-America honors and is one of just 10 outfielders across the nation to earn the 2013 preseason distinction.

The reigning Atlantic 10 Player of the Year, Roy also was picked as the 63rd best player in the country by College Baseball Daily in early January. Roy finished his sophomore season ranked either first or second on the team—and was among the conference leaders—in every offensive category. He recorded a team-best 84 hits and 59 runs while leading the league with a .421 average in A-10 games (40-95). He also reached base in a conference best 41 consecutive games, in addition to leading the Rams with a .487 slugging percentage and a .443 on-base percentage.

The Cranston, R.I. native also was named to the NEIBA All-New England and ECAC Division I All-Star Teams and was an honorable mention on College Baseball Insider’s All-America Team.

Roy carried his success into the summer, when he was a First Team All-Star and top prospect in the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL). Playing for the North Adams SteepleCats, he led his team in hits (48), runs (40), doubles (11), triples (3), and stolen bases (24), while becoming the first player in NECBL history to steal more than 20 bases and hit 10-or-more doubles in a single season.
