I am a switch-hitting catcher looking for a team for the 2024-25 season (Oct.-Mar.) after my 2024 summer season. This past summer (2023) I played for Billings in the Pioneer League and Santa Fe in the Pecos League (combined BA – .320). During the 2022 season I Played in the Pioneer Professional League (BA – .318), and in 2021 I played in the American Association and the Pecos Professional Baseball League (BA – .299). Catching is my primary position, but I can also play 1B, 2B and 3B, and will play wherever the team needs me.  As a catcher, I love working with my pitchers, and most of my coaches have allowed me to call my own games.  My defensive strengths include framing, blocking, and a strong arm. I’m an effective hitter from both sides of the plate, and my overall pro BA is .305. My professional experience has resulted in leadership skills that permit me to work closely with my pitchers and to be able to handle game challenges with an experienced eye.  Controlling the running game is critical, not only with my arm, but also by contributing to infield strategies to contain that often-overlooked part of the game. I am willing to pay for my flights, and to work on the side to supplement my income if necessary.  I have extensive experience working youth baseball camps, giving private lessons, helping coach high school ball, and have coached at the junior college level during the past three JUCO seasons. Any team that can use me on their roster will not regret it.

Video Highlights


Wilson Kilmer

Head Coach, Eudora (KS) H.S. and former pitching coach, University of Kansas

Jared is an outstanding catcher with an excellent arm and a quick release on his throws. He does a great job of receiving and framing pitches, as well as being a very good blocker. He understands pitchers and how to call the game. I always allowed him to call the pitches on his own. He is the complete package as a catcher.

He is a switch hitter who can hit for average with occasional power. He understands situational hitting and is willing to do what the team needs done. He is not a guy up to bat just trying to hit home runs, he is more concerned with winning the game.

As a young man he is at the top of the list when you judge character. He is very dedicated to being a great player. In high school, he would often show up early to practice working on his skills. He does a great job of leading by example as well as being able to talk to his teammates. As a senior in high school, he was an All-State selection, and he led our team to the state tournament with the best record in the state that year.

To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Michael Moore and I am the Owner of the Baldwin City Blues and the Commissioner of the Mid Plains League; a summer wood bat collegiate league based in Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas. We have been in existence since 2013 when myself and 4 like-minded Coaches drafted Articles of Incorporation to establish the League. I believe I am accurate in stating that the Mid Plains League has become a premier “go to” destination for the finest collegiate Baseball Players in the Midwest. To date over 40 Players have either been drafted or signed professional baseball contracts.
Jared Fry is a young man that we recruited to play for us in Baldwin City. He was well known in the area as not only a highly skilled Baseball Player but as a young man of high character, dedication and leadership. His abilities on and off the field resulted in his being named the Conner Taylor Award Winner given annually to the player who best exemplifies the characteristics of former Blues Player, Conner Taylor. Character traits include; Leadership, Support, Empathy, Honesty and Integrity. When combined with his baseball prowess, choosing Jared for the Conner Taylor Award was an easy decision for the Blues.
In June 2021 Jared signed a professional baseball contract with the Monterrey Amberjacks of the Pecos League. He has performed extremely well, becoming one of the premier players in the league and hitting homeruns to “walk off” 3 close games.
Jared Fry is not only an outstanding athlete he is a young man who possesses an awareness of those around him and considers the impact his decisions have on others. He is the type of young man who would immediately add to the legitimacy of any league he played in. As a result I feel absolutely confident in recommending Jared for inclusion in your Baseball Organization.

Thank you for your time,

Michael Moore, Commissioner
Mid Plains League
