2009 All-Canadian College Team: South Dakota State’s Jesse Sawyer is head of the class

By Bob Elliott, Canadian Baseball Network

JesseSawyerSDSU There was nothing provisional about the swing of third baseman Jesse Sawyer.

Playing his first year of college ball south of the border,  Sawyer hit .346 with 19 homers and 58 RBIs in 56 games for the South Dakota State Jackrabbits.

A product of the Prairie Baseball Academy and coach Blair Kubicek, Sawyer had one stretch where he homered in 11 of 13 games for SDSU, in its second season as a provisional NCAA Division I school.

When Atlanta Braves starter Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine filmed the NIKE commercial the key line was delivered by Maddux who said “chicks dig the long ball.”

And so do voters.

Sawyer’s 19 homers led the 711 Canadians playing south of the border in 2009 and he also led all vote getters in balloting for the 10th annual All-Canadian College Team. Sawyer had 33 first-place votes and was named on 43 of 49 ballots to win our unofficial player of the year award.
