East Central’s Jesse Boydstun Named MACJC Baseball Player of the Week

East Central Community College freshman outfielder Jesse Boydstun was selected the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges Baseball Player of the Week for games played March 2-8.

The product of Winston Academy in Louisville helped the Warriors to a 2-2 week by hitting .692 with nine hits in 13 official at-bats. He had three doubles, one home run, five RBI, and scored five runs. He also had a stolen base.

Boydstun collected at least two hits in all four games. In a doubleheader sweep over Jones College on March 8, his two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning started East Central on a 7-6 come-from-behind win. In the second game of the doubleheader he was three-for-three at the plate.

On the season, Boydstun leads the Warriors in batting average (.460), hits (17), doubles (8), home runs (3), and RBI (22).
