Bio: Jordan played in 63 of Colorado Mesa’s 65 games this season, 62 of which he started, and was instrumental in helping the Mavericks reach the NCAA Division II Tournament championship game. He led Colorado Mesa in RBI’s (55), hits (tied one other with 81), doubles (20), total bases (142), and was second in fielding percentage (.990). The Parker, Colo., native was second on the team in home runs (13) and third in batting average (.371). He also sported a 1.027 ops (.604 slugging percentage, .423 on-base %).
Stubbings, who was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference’s Freshman Positional Player of the Year and cited as a second-team selection by the Division II Conference Commissioner’s Association in 2018, hit .382 in 42 games – 34 of which he started – and led the Mavericks in home runs (11), runs batted in (53), slugging percentage (.701), and fielding percentage (.991).
Stubbings said he is excited about his upcoming summer gig in Walla Walla “because of the talent that is in the WCL and I have family that lives in the area. It’s going to be a great summer and I’m very excited to play with the Sweets.”
Walla Walla manager Frank Mutz stated that Stubbings, who stands 6-foot-1 and tips the scales at 235 pounds, can pound the baseball.
“We have been recruiting power and on-base percentage, and Stubbings fits the bill,” Mutz said. “He has put up solid numbers over the past two seasons in high school and his freshman year at CMU.”
Jordan, the son of Troy and Renne Stubbings, enjoys chicken, hamburgers, and salad, and says he can’t do without WiFi.
