Stefan McGovern

Head Coach of Menlo College

Jimmy is probably the best kid I have ever coached, as far as getting the most out of his skills and pure determination. Jimmy was a two year starter on the mound for me in the Cascade Conference (Lewis & Clark State, British Columbia, College of Idaho, etc.). The level he competed at was great for NAIA, as we had a good conference, and played a strong non-conference against the GSAC in California. His primary pitch is his cutter/slider, which he locates better than he does his FB. He also has a 2 sm and CH. Jimmy led the team in wins and ERA his senior season, and I had two guys get drafted from that staff. I believe he had 4 complete games that season, and 2 of them were shutouts. I’ve never had the pleasure of coaching a better kid which more grit to figure out ways to win in my coaching career. He wants the ball every day, and he has a plan for every at bat. His character is unmatched, as he worked a full time job while going to college to pay for his tuition, and he was awarded the NAIA Champions of Character award in 2013. He loves to play and continues to get better, and he is a great guy to have in the clubhouse. If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Ben Portelli

President of the Newport Rams

Quite simply, Jimmy was amazing. He exceeded all of our expectations on and off the field. He is an outstanding pitcher who has great variety, control and stamina. But what make him so good is that he is just such a great competitor. He hates being beaten and he never gives up. He loves a contest and he thrives in any competitive situation. When he wasn’t pitching he played middle infield. He had such a dominant season that he not only won our club champion player award, he also won our league MVP. The added bonus for any club lucky enough to sign Jimmy is his personality and willingness to be involved around the club. He was great with our club members and supporters. We miss him greatly and would love him to come back one day. If you do decide to sign Jimmy you won’t regret it for a minute. He is a great, humble guy who sets a great example for his team mates. He is also an outstanding baseball player and would be an asset to any team. We wish him all the very best on his continued baseball journey.

Kye Hislop-Dewar

Player/Manager of the Macarthur Orioles

My name is Kye Hislop-Dewar, I represent the Macarthur Orioles out of Sydney Australia. I’m very pleased to be asked to right this recommendation as I highly regard Jimmy Jensen as both a player and teammate. I have been the recruitment manager for the Orioles for 5 years now, each year we sign and host 3 imports. I follow a thorough recruitment process but still it can be difficult to understand a persons character until they’re on your roster. I find that former imports fall into one of a few categories, those that you wouldn’t have back, those you would welcome back and those that you would do all you can to have back. Jimmy definitely falls into that last category. He is the ultimate competitor. He has a presence on the hill. He is a hard worker. He knows what it takes to get the best out of himself and doesn’t cheat himself. He buys into a team culture and brand. On the field he is a constant supporter for his teammates. Off the field he is very talented at promoting the game and club. Jimmy has visited Sydney since playing with the Orioles and when he does he has an endless list of former teammates and coaches opening their homes to him. He is a very respectful, loyal and likeable guy. I wish you all the best with your recruitment planning, if you sign Jimmy you have one hell of a player and clubman on your hands.
