Jeren Kendall has earned a Gold Glove Award from the American Baseball Coaches/Rawlings to become the first Commodore since Vince Conde in 2014 to earn the exclusive award.
The Gold Glove Award is just the most recent honor for Kendall. The junior was tabbed a second team All-American by Perfect Game and South All-Region member by the ABCA. Kendall wrapped up another strong season at Vanderbilt earlier this month by being selected 23rd overall by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Major League Baseball draft to become the highest drafted Vanderbilt outfielder in school history. He hit .307 with a team-best 59 runs scored and 15 home runs, the most by a Commodore since 2015. He started 180 of the 184 games in his career, including the final 172 and ranks seventh all-time at VU with 67 stolen bases and second all-time with 19 triples. The Holmen, Wisc. native made just six errors in his career, including only one during the Commodores’ 2017 campaign.
Kendall is just the third Commodore in the program's history to earn the award, joining Conde and Sonny Gray (2011).
