Accolades for Mud Hens’ Lennerton

Jordan Lennerton has been named the best defensive first baseman among all Triple-A baseball players.

Lennerton, a Brookswood Secondary graduate who played in the Langley Blaze Premier baseball program, is a member of the Toledo Mud Hens, the top affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Detroit Tigers.

He was selected as the top defender at his position through a poll conducted by Baseball America, with the league’s managers voting.

The 28-year-old played in the 2013 MLB Futures Games as part of Team World as well as in last year’s Triple-A all-star game.

Lennerton is hitting .229 with a .342 on-base percentage in 102 games this season in Toledo. He also has six home runs and 35 RBIs.
