Apr 07, 2020

Army Baseball All-Decade Team: Utility/DHOver the course of the 2020 season, the Army West Point Baseball program will highlight the accomplishments of their alumni over the last 10 years by naming members to the Army West Point Baseball All-Decade Team. The team was voted on by a committee of Army coaches and administrators who spent time with the team from 2010-2019. Each recipient displayed excellence on the field and was recognized for their athletic achievements during their time at West Point. These players helped continue the legacy of Army baseball while setting new standards for the program.

The final group of players to join the Army Baseball All-Decade Team helped the Black Knights at several different positions, putting them in the utility/DH category.

Joey Henshaw ’11 .349 avg., 188 hits, 23 HR, 113 RBI, 113 runs scored
A premier power threat at the plate, Joey Henshaw ranks as one of the great hitters in program history. His 23 home runs are fifth most in Army history and his .349 average ranks eighth on the programs' all-time list. His 13 home runs during his yearling campaign in 2009 are the most in a single season by a Black Knight. The feat earned him ABCA All-American recognition and a nod as an ECAC All-Star. Henshaw finished his career as a two-time First Team All-Patriot League recipient.

Kevin McKague ’12: .356 avg., 283 hits, 24 HR, 183 RBI, 159 runs scored, 27 saves, 2.36 ERA
A true two-way player, Kevin McKague stands among the Army greats both on the mound and at the plate. His 210 starts in an Army uniform are the most by any player in program history. As a pitcher, he ranks as Army's all-time leader with 27 saves. His 13 saves in 2010 were the most ever recorded by a Black Knight in a single season. At the plate, he ranks first in Army history in hits (283), multi-hit games (87), doubles (55) and total bases (414). McKague is second in career RBIs (183), fourth in home runs (24), fourth in runs scored (159) and seventh in batting average (.356). Among his long list of accolades are five All-American nods, two all-region selections and three First Team All-Patriot League honors. McKague was selected in the MLB Draft by the Atlanta Braves on two occasions, first in the 50th round of the 2011 draft and then in the 23rd round of the 2012 draft.
