After being knocked out of the Semi Finals of the SWAC conference tournament, Carson Lee got picked up by the Monterey Amberjacks of the Pecos League to finish out the season. To begin his Professional career, Carson had a walk off single to record his first career RBI. Carson played the remaining 32 games with Monterey where he played primarily 3rd and 2nd base for the Amberjacks. He was also an anchor in Monterey’s order where he consistently hit in the middle of the lineup and finished 5th in number of hits (41) and 2nd in average (.369) while only being there for half of the season.

To begin the calendar year of 2018, Carson went and played in the California Winter League to get extra at-bats over the downtime. Lee played with the Washington Bluesox coached by Gabe Suarez and Winston Abreu. Once again Lee played 3rd and 2nd base where he hit in the top half of the lineup. Lee was a critical part of the Bluesox success who went on to win the Championship of the league, where he went 3-5 with 4 RBI’s and a stolen base and was named league MVP. Carson always brings a winning mentality to the field, no matter what game he is competing in, where he said after the game, “It doesn’t matter what league it is – you always play to win… The first day we got together and said, ‘Let’s win this whole thing.’ Now we’re here, we won and it feels awesome. I love it.” A competitor at heart.

Describing Carson as versatile is something he embraces. Since his Freshman year of high school, Carson has gone on to play every position on the field, besides catcher. A 2nd baseman growing up, Carson moved to 3rd his freshman year, where he wound up staying his high school career at Jersey Village high school, where he was a key part in leading 9 straight wins to get into the playoffs, where the Falcons wound up falling in the second round to a now MLB pitcher. Carson’s freshman year at North Lake Junior College, he was moved to the outfield, but once he got recruited to play at Prairie View A&M, he again returned to the infield to be the teams starting 1st baseman. Lee had a big moment in the Panther season that year when he hit a walk off Grand Slam to beat Alcorn State university, 1 of 2 career home runs against Alcorn State. That summer when Carson went on to play in the Carl Young Collegiate League, Carson became the teams starting SS. Going into the second season at PV. Carson was featured on high priority follow draft list where he was seen as someone to get drafted out of the SWAC conference. With a new coach leading the charge, Lee again was moved to the outfield, where he began the season as being named Player of the Week, but unfortunately a week later, he fell victim to a knee injury and missed the season. When Lee returned to action, it was in the Texas Collegiate League where he started at 2nd base for the team. To finish up his college career, Lee returned to 1st base and helped lead the charge to take the Panthers into the semi finals of the conference tournament before being defeated by powerhouse Alabama State University. As a student-athlete, Carson also received his Bachelor’s degree in kinesiology at the end of the spring semester. Carson takes pride in his ability to play any position on the field at any given moment.

Carson is a developed professional hitter. With gap to gap power, he is looking to drive guys in and put his guys on the score board. He is a developed approach, understanding the strike zone, and knowing what he is trying to do at the plate under the situation of the game. Lee is not going to let the pitcher beat him and even with 2 strikes, he is capable of bearing down and putting the ball in play. Lee is looking to get on base any way he can to help the chances of his team to win. Once he’s on base, he is looking for a way to advance as quick as possible, whether that may be swiping a bag, looking for a ball in the dirt, or hustling out an extra base on a base hit.

When asked to describe himself, Lee would call himself a Dustin Pedroia type player, not because Pedroia is his favorite player, but because of the intensity and passion that Pedroia plays the game with, is the same way Lee plays the game. 100% hustling all the time, playing as hard as he can and just being a dirt dog. With baseball being apart of his bloodlines and coming from a long line of baseball family. Lee is passionate about the game and has only learned to play the game one way, which was instilled to him by his father, and that is HARD. Not only does Lee play the game hard, but he is the kind of person you would want to have in your clubhouse. He is a ‘lead by example’ type player because of how he goes about his craft. Lee works his butt off to get the most out of his ability he can. Going to the gym everyday, extra swings in the cage, taking extra ground balls, just always trying to learn more and more and just be a sponge so that he can continue to grow as a player but also a teammate. Lee sticks to his daily plan and gets done what he feels to get done, doing the little things that it will take to get better. Lee wants to be a role model for other people, he wants to have a relationship with his teammates where they trust in each other to get the job done, but also to be a friend. To give them belief that they can do whatever they set their mind to.

Because of the platform baseball has put Carson on, with allowing him to meet and connect with so many people, he wants to influence people and be the guy kids look up to. He loves giving back and being able to help a kid out and develop their skills so that he can enhance their baseball career. That’s the kind of person he wants to be known as, someone who was selfless and always looked out for the person next to him and tried to get to know as many people as he could to help them out.

Fun Fact about Carson, when he had the experience of a lifetime in 2014, he was a Bat Boy for the Houston Astros on the Visiting Clubhouse’s side which allowed him to get behind the scenes and understand how the game works from a view that not many people get to see. Because of this, he has really developed the mental edge and what it truly takes to play this game at a high level, as he has seen the game from the dugout and talked with various Major Leaguers.

Chase Lambin

Texas Rangers, Minor League Hitting Coach

Thank you for reaching out. Carson is one of my most favorite hitters I have ever coached. He is everything that is right about the game of baseball. He embodies the spirit, discipline, and resilience it takes to play this game at the highest level. He is committed to get the most out of his career and will do whatever it takes to develop himself. He loves the game, not for what it can do for him, but for what he can do for the game. Carson is a shining star when it comes to playing the game the right way and giving back to the people around him. He is a true grinder who would run through a brick wall for his team. I fully endorse the fact that he will make whatever team he is a part of, better.

Rudy Vasquez

Los Angeles Angels Scout

I scouted Carson a few years ago in high school and also watched him play in college. He loves the game, works very hard to get better, and plays with passion. He's a versatile player who can play 2B 3B 1B and probably both corner outfield positions. He may even be able to catch. He's an aggressive hitter who displays plate management skills and makes consistent contact. He is more of a gap to gap hitter than power hitter but does have power to hit one out to his pull side. He's a great teammate and is very coachable. He has my highest recommendation.
