Jake is entering his 3rd full season in the IBL and has a career average of .271 (49-181) with 6 homeruns and 29 RBI’s. Last season, even though he played a month with a severe hamstring injury and missed 10 days Jake hit .279 (22-79) with 2 homeruns.

When Jake was asked about the upcoming season he stated “I am excited to finally be healthy and get back on the field with the guys next year. We came together over the course of the 2018 season and it showed in the playoffs. The culture has changed in the clubhouse with the mix of veterans and new guys. This organization has a bright future. Let’s roll!”
