Personal

As a hitter, Bailey has recorded a peak exit velocity in the mid-90s (mph), and he has good power from gap to gap.

Defensively, he was primarily a second baseman during his collegiate career, but he has played shortstop and third base in various summer leagues, so he will add versatility to any club he plays for.  His velocity on the throws across the infield ranges from the mid- to high 80s (mph).

He says, “I always strive to hold myself and my teammates to a high standard. I want us all to play the game passionately, invest in it, and enjoy it.”

Bailey is training and working out regularly to remain in top condition and to keep his baseball skills sharp.

As a coach, Bailey has assisted youth and travel-ball teams, and he has also helped train players at the high-school level.

Bailey has been a leader on our team since day 1. His work ethic, leadership, and perseverance speak for itself. He helped our team develop on and off the field, modeling what it means to be successful as a ballplayer and student. He continues to be a great teammate, leader and resource for younger guys on the team. With his help, Crown College Baseball has been able to achieve new heights by making the conference championships for the first time, and now in consecutive years. I'm thankful for Bailey's loyalty and I would absolutely recommend him as a ball player, and as a leader to help other baseball players develop.
