WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – Former UNCW baseball player Greg Jones finally has his first Major League hit – and it was a big one.

Jones hit a home run in the Rockies’ 9-5 loss to the Dodgers on Monday night.

He is the 14th UNCW baseball alum to reach the major leagues.

Jones was the highest draft pick in UNCW baseball history when he was selected 22nd overall by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2019.
