Jordan has a lot to offer on and off the field. Not only does he have a diverse skill set that has allowed him to be successful at the college and professional level on the mound, and most recently as an All Star infielder in the Empire League. Jordan is a leader and brings not only a wealth of knowledge and love for the game of baseball, but he is one of the more enjoyable individuals you will ever be around.
Jordan played for me in the empire league. He’s a versatile player that’s willing to work hard & a joy to be around. His abilities are steadily increasing with experience & he’s coachable. He was honored to go to empire league all star game in 2019..but I think he’s still got plenty of untapped talent! Jordan.. can do about anything on the diamond & his power is increasing as well. Overall a very steady player & a solid competitor!
