The North Carolina High School Baseball Coaches Association has announced its 2013 all-state team. And Ryder Jones, who had a stellar season at Watauga High, was named the Class 4A All-State Team.
It's Jones second all-state selection this season. He was also named to the Class 4A All-State Team. Jones was selected by the San Francisco Giants in the second-round (64th pick) of the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft on June 6.
Jones is currently playing for the AZL Giants of the Rookie Arizona League, and he's hitting a blistering .438 through his first five professional games. Jones, who was the Northwestern 3A/4A Conference Player of the Year and the North Carolina Gatorade Baseball Player of the Year, is 7-16 with three doubles, six runs scored and two runs-batted-in.
Jones was 2-4 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI Wednesday night in an 8-2 victory against the AZL Indians.
