Mark Kane of Prairie State College in Illinois has signed with the Jimmie baseball team.

Kane, a right-handed hitting infielder and outfielder, from Tinley, Ill., will have two years of eligibility at the University of Jamestown. Prairie State College is a member of the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference.

He’s currently hitting .304 with a home run and 17 RBI in 24 games for Prairie State College. He joins former PSC teammate Patrick Nelson, who is a redshirt in the UJ program currently.

“We are very excited that Mark has chosen to become a Jimmie. He is a first-class individual who isn’t afraid to leave it all on the field,” head coach Tom Hager said. “His work ethic in the classroom and on the diamond, will be a great fit for the University of Jamestown.

“We are looking forward to working with him in the future.”
