Jake Jinkerson-Washington Senior American Legion Baseball

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Washington Senior Legion Baseball Player Jake Jinkerson.

At the plate, Jake's batting average is .292 with 14 rbi's and 12 runs scored and he's very good at bunting.  He laid down a perfect sacrifice bunt to score an insurance run in the eighth inning of the 9th District Championship game against St. Charles Sunday afternoon.  Washington went on to win the game 6-3. 

Jake took over at second base early in the season. He is a solid defender with only six errors. He has quick feet and moves well in all directions.  Jake is very good at tracking down shallow fly balls hit to the outfield. He displayed his leaping ability Sunday afternoon when he reached high to catch a screaming line drive and doubled off a runner at second base to end the 9th district championship game.

As a pitcher, Jake's record is 1-1 with an era of 3.5.  He has posted 10 strike outs and four walks over 12 innings.

Jake played AA Junior Legion baseball last year and was instrumental in the run to the regional championship. 

Jake attends Washington High School.
