Jamar Bray..... I really like this young man and his game. Unfortunately for him he has had some bad coaching. After his junior year I was trying to get him drafted in the later rounds, but our guys wouldn’t pull the trigger . He’s a big powerful young man. 6’3 left handed hitter. If a pitcher throws him inside or hangs a breaking ball... it’s gone! What I really like about Jamar is he goes the other way. A couple of times the coaches he had wanted to only pull the ball, which effected his batting average. Jamar would be a great addition to have in the middle of the lineup. Defensively he can hold his own at first, I think his feet has to get a little better to play third, but he can play it. Jamar comes from a great family and does a lot in his community with his charity that he started. If you need any more information please let me know.
I recruited Jamar out of high school to play first base and hit in the middle of our order at Grace College. His character and his desire to play baseball were never in question. His attitude and work ethic was exceptional. He became a favorite among 'all' of his teammates and coaches. His heart, enthusiasm, drive and work ethic was what set him apart from most of his teammates. I only had one year with Jamar before I left the school, but I saw a great deal of growth with him as a player and a person. Jamar possessed the ability to drive the ball to all fields and did very well at first base for the Lancers.
