Personal

Tucker is more than your average submariner – with a low to mid-80s fastball and the ability to start games, he is a solid pick up for any organization. After graduating from USC Beaufort (NAIA) in 2022 with a stellar 1.96 ERA, Perry went on to play for the Savannah Bananas in 2023.

While Tucker has spent the majority of his career as a closer, he has been working this off-season on building up his pitch count so that he will be ready to throw more innings come spring-time. His velocities are as follows: FB 82-83, SL 74-75, CH 71-72 (Verified).

Aside from his play on the field, Perry has also been coaching for the past 5 years and will bring plenty of knowledge to any organization that he commits to. His coach, Kevin Kies from the Hitforth Hitting Facility describes him as having “a unique ability to connect with anyone, regardless of background, age, or skill level.”

Testimonials

Kevin Kies

Hitforth hitting facility, hitting coach

I've played with, coached, and coached with Tucker Perry at different points in time over the last 11 years. He's always brought great energy and a high baseball IQ to his teams. His love of baseball is present in how he prepares for training/games, represents himself on and off of the field, and is constantly looking to learn more about the game. He has a unique ability to connect with anyone, regardless of background, age, or skill level. He is coachable while also possessing the knowledge, communication skills, and feel to be able to coach others. Tucker's ability on the mound mixed with his energy and passion for the game make him someone that will benefit any team that gives him the opportunity.

Party Animals, head coach

I had Tucker Perry as a player from 2022-23. He wasn't only a great addition to our bullpen staff, but an even better addition to our clubhouse. Tucker takes his playing very seriously but has one of the best clubhouse personalities I've ever come in-counter with. He is a hard worker, professional, and just a solid human all around. I personally think he would be a great addition to any ball-club or coaching staff.
