Boston College Baseball: Jimmy Dowdell Named Valley League All Star

You'd think there was some legitimate talent on this team or something!

Birdballer Jimmy Dowdell was named to the Valley Baseball League All Star Game this week.

Dowdell, playing for the Aldie Senators, is battling back from an injury-shortened career at BC where he missed significant time, playing a career high 28 games last year while starting 13. He missed the 2012 season with an injury and had his 2011 season cut short after six games due to one as well.

He currently ranks 7th in the league in hitting with a .353 batting average. In 23 games, he's collected 30 hits, including three doubles and a homer, while driving in 12. He also has two swiped bags in five attempts. The Palm Harbor, Florida senior recently went 2-for-5 with a double and 2 RBI in a 6-3 win over the Winchester Royals. Earlier this year, he went 3-for-3 against the Royals with a run scored and an RBI. He's collected hits in all but four games he's appeared in this year.

The Valley League is an NCAA-sanctioned summer league out of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Twelve teams dot the league in two divisions. Alumni from the league include former Red Sox pitcher Javier Lopez, utility player and designated hitter Luke Scott of the Tampa Bay Rays, and 2007 World Series MVP Mike Lowell. This year's All Star Game will be on July 7th in Harrisburg.

Congratulations to Jimmy on this accomplishment! Go Eagles!
