KENAI, Alaska – The success for Georgia College baseball continues in the summer, as rising junior Jake Sandlin (Evans, Ga.) was recently selected to the Alaska Baseball League (ABL) All-Star Game.
Sandlin, an outfielder on the Peninsula Oilers, started slowly but has gotten hot as of late. He is now batting .307 with seven RBI and 16 runs over 25 games.
An everyday starter in rightfield for the Bobcats in 2014, Sandlin hit .365 with six home runs, 59 RBI, 12 steals and 59 runs scored. He earned All-Peach Belt Conference (PBC) status as a freshman, and was also named to the PBC All-Tournament Team that season.
The Oilers are 9-17, third place in the ABL American League.
The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
