Generals Add Two from Southland Conference

Jake Wood - University of Texas-San Antonio
The Victoria Generals have announced the addition of two new players with ties to the Southland Conference. Jake Wood, a sophomore from the University of Texas-San Antonio, and Alex Jack, a junior from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, will play for the Generals in the summer of 2011.
 
“The Texas Collegiate League always has a large number of players from the Southland Conference,” stated Blake Koch, GM of the Generals. “We feel that these two young men will come in and have a positive impact on our team this summer.”
 
Jake Wood, a left-handed hitter from of Noblesville, Indiana, started at first base in 35 games for the UTSA Roadrunners as a true freshman last year, hitting .205 with seven doubles, four home runs, 17 runs, and 19 RBI. 
 
As a senior at Noblesville High School, Wood was named the Co-Player of the Year in Hamilton County after batting .494, with 10 home runs, 33 runs scored, and 32 RBI.
 
“Jake is a big kid with a lot of power in his bat,” commented Koch. “He’s definitely the type of player that can change a game with one swing of the bat.”
 
Alex Jack, a 6’4” left-handed pitcher, will give the Generals extra depth on the mound this summer. 
 
Jack, a native of Arroyo, California, transferred to A&M-Corpus Christi after playing two seasons at Chabot Community College where he posted an 11-2 career record as the team’s ace. 
 
Jack earned first-team all-league honors as a sophomore after posting a 5-1 mark with a 3.44 ERA. He had 39 strikeouts in 55 innings while holding opponents to a .211 batting average. 
 
As a freshman in 2009, Jack was 6-1 with a 3.24 ERA. He averaged nearly a strikeout per inning with 58 strikeouts in 58.1 innings of work, while holding hitters to a .220 average at the plate.
 
“Alex has had a lot of success at the collegiate level during his career,” said Koch. “He certainly has the size and physical ability to be a pro ballplayer one day.”
