Moquete Earns D3Baseball.com First Team All-Region Honors

D3Baseball.com All-Region Teams

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.
