I am a 6’1 195 lb utility player. I primarily played 2nd base but also played all outfield positions as well as appeared in 10 games in relief and started 1 game with a record of 1-1.  I played Division 2 college baseball my freshmen and sophomore year where I was selected SIAC All-Conference as a freshman by league coaches and runner-up Freshmen of the Year in the SIAC.

My freshmen year, I lead the team in batting average, (over 100 at-bats), (.306), second in hits (33),  walks (18) and fielding percentage (.967), and third in runs-batted-in (19), stolen bases (12-14) and on-base percentage (.423).  While hitting a grand slam also.

I was Preseason All-Conference my sophomore year until sustaining a hamstring injury which limited me to 9 games during my sophomore season. In 27 at-bats that season I was hitting .333 with 2 doubles and 4 RBIs.

My junior year while playing at Rochester College (NAIA Division 1),  my hamstring injury reoccurred which limited me to 3 games where I had 9 at-bats with 4 hits and 2 runs-batted-in.

My senior year I was able to compete for the entire season injury-free in which I lead our league (WHAC), in steals and setting a team record in the process. In 42 games my senior year, in 130 at-bats, I had a batting average of .285 and a slugging percentage of .385. with 27 walks, 4 doubles, 3 home runs with 21 runs-batted-in while scoring 26 runs hitting leadoff and 2-hole.

I have also played in the Flint CBL (NABF) National Amateur Baseball Federation since 2013 to present where I lead the league in doubles and steals while hitting .364 the past two seasons.

I am also a Bill and Melinda Gates Millenium Scholarship winner.

Caleb is an all-around solid player. Defensively, I don’t know if he has the range to play center field at the next level, but is very good instinctively out there and will track down a lot of fly balls. His arm isn’t a strong tool, but he gets the ball out quick and has a good enough arm for it not to be a detriment. Offensively he had a great year at the plate, but the best part of his game may have been on the bases. He doesn’t have plus plus speed, but he is an above average runner. Where he sets himself apart are his instincts on the bases and his ability to get good jumps and steal bases no matter the battery combination. At the plate, he hit for average and more power than what we expected from him, which is a testament to his work in the weight room. He has the ability to hit hard line drives to all fields and has some power to the pull gap which I can only see increasing with now another 6 months of lifting under his belt since his senior season. Off the field, Caleb is a great human being. He lives to serve others. While he has been training for the past few months, he has started to pursue his masters in Educational Leadership and has also served as an assistant coach at Rochester College, mentoring a number of our young outfielders and hitters. He was a great student as well, earning the Gates Foundation Scholarship out of high school and graduating college with above a 3.1 GPA.

Caleb Psycher would be an excellent candidate for this opportunity to pursue his career related to baseball overseas. I coached Caleb at Morehouse College 2014 and 2015 as an assistant with the program. Most importantly, off the field, he was a Gates Millennium scholar while attending Morehouse College. Teammates respected him and his abilities as a leader of young men. While coaching Caleb it was evident that he had the skills needed to perform at a highly competitive level on the field and the classroom. Furthermore, what was most impressive was his demeanor of respect for the coaching staff, student-athletes, faculty, and administration. Also, I fail to mention Caleb had a blue-collar approach related to his work ethic and always inquisitive toward staff as far as how he can improve his baseball skills along with his cognitive approach toward the game. Lastly, it has been a pleasure to know Caleb Psycher as a player and a friend.
