From 2012-2017 I played college baseball for Dodge City Community College, University of Northern Colorado, and the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs where I had time as a starting catcher.

In September of 2017, I played and helped bring Surfers Paradise Baseball Club, of the Greater Brisbane League in Australia, their 6th championship. In 131 at-bats my batting average finished at .351, tied as the league leader in home runs (6), finished second in RBIs (38), and had the highest throwout percentage in the league (9 for 30).

I returned for the 2018-2019 season with Surfers Paradise and was picked up by the Auckland Tuatara of the Australia Baseball League later in the season.

2019 summer I played for the Tempo Praha Titans of the Czech Republic Extraliga. In 128 at-bats my final batting average was .328, an OBP of .456, hit 3 home runs, 8 doubles, and a OPS of .933.

In the summers of 2016-2019 I worked as the bullpen catcher for the Brewers AAA minor league team, Colorado Springs Sky Sox.

I take pride in my catching. I’m a hard working ball player. My glove to bag pop time ranges 1.90-2.00 seconds. I block, receive, command the field, and control the pitching staff.

I love this game and want to continue to play.

Great competitor, works hard, dedicated to the game, coaches, he’s the full package for teams looking to fill all those needs

Scott Hillier

Player/Coach for Surfers Paradise

I could not speak more highly of him, exceptional on and off the field! On the field last year he was an absolute offensive weapon, this year whilst going through some struggles is still coming up with lots of clutch hitting. His defence is near perfect! Off the field he has one of the best rapports with everyone in the club and feels like a local honestly. Within the Gold Coast I swear he knows more people than I do now and has truly fit in which is a huge testament to his character

Jerry is good guy and a great teammate. He works and plays hard. He played eight games with us on the Auckland Tuatara in the Australian Baseball League. He is a catcher with a 2.0 pop time, catches and frames well. Blocks very well. As a hitter he hits for average. He most definitely will be a great addition to your team
