Baseball Factory Alum Remington Monce Receives Gold Glove Honor
Baseball Factory Alum Remington Monce was recently named a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II Baseball Golden Glove winner for the 2017 season after an impressive freshman campaign for the Jackson College Jets Baseball program.
Monce, a right-hander from Lagro, Indiana, pitched in 12 games, making 10 starts for the Jets this season, finishing with a 7-1 mark as opponents hit just .179 against him as he averaged eight strikeouts a game in 50 1/3 innings pitched. His Gold Glove honor comes after finishing the season with a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage on 58 total chances. In addition to the Gold Glove award, Monce also was named to all-conference third-team and all-conference freshman team as well.
As we’ve wrote about in the past, Monce attended many Baseball Factory events, beginning with his first ever event in Indianapolis at a Little League Youth Clinic in May of 2010 as a 12-year old. Monce attended numerous Under Armour Baseball Factory National Tryout and College PREP events between 2012 and 2014. In 2015, he faced high-caliber talent at the Under Armour Baseball Factory National East Showcase where he threw upper 80s with a great 11/5 breaking ball and a good, deceptive changeup with run that he controlled well.
Remington was one of nearly 400 top baseball players in the country to be selected to participate in the 2016 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament in Mesa, Arizona where, in his final Factory event, he kept hitters off balance with his arsenal of pitches including a fastball that he commanded well, topping out at 86 with good run, an explosive slider that sat high 70s with good, sharp break, in addition to a changeup and curve that had nice movement.
Monce has his eyes set on the next step, hoping to transfer to Purdue University to study business and play baseball.
