Menlo College baseball player Jimmy Bosco put together the most impressive single season of any player in Menlo history. He was rewarded as a first team NAIA All-American, the first in program history to be named All-American.

A junior right fielder hailing from Granite Bay, Bosco made his presence felt in a big way in his first season, batting .426 with a .805 slugging percentage and .519 on base percentage.

Offensively, Bosco led the Oaks in every major statistical category including: batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, runs (51), hits (81), doubles (23), triples (2), home runs (15), RBI (57), total bases (153), walks (31) and stolen bases (15).

Additionally, Bosco was the nation's leader in slugging percentage, total bases, and total bases per game (2.94) and was second in the country in home runs with 15.

Bosco started all 52 games for the Oaks and recorded 25 multi-hit games this season including a string of six-straight between March 27-April 5.

Bosco also had three multi-home run games including a dominating four-home run day in a doubleheader against conference foe Corban on April 6. In that four-game series, Bosco had seven hits, 11 runs and 12 RBI to lead the Oaks to the weekend sweep.

His remarkable year also included nine different games in which he drove in three or more runs, four with at least five RBI.

His penchant for plating base runners was on full display March 27 when he went a perfect 4-for-4 with a season-best seven RBI against La Sierra.

Defensively, Bosco was perfect on 104 attempts in right field while showcasing his strong throwing arm with six outfield assists.

In addition to his First Team All-America honors, Bosco also earned accolades as the NAIA West's Player of the Year, First Team All-Conference, and a Conference Gold Glove Award winner.

Under second year head coach Stefan McGovern, Menlo finished with a 34-18 (20-8) record, the most wins in program history.
