Jimmy is a classic example of how hard work and persistence can help lead to success. Despite being cut from his high school baseball team, Jimmy worked his way onto one of the top junior college programs in California, Chabot College. He later transferred to Menlo College where he played two seasons and earned a marketing degree. At Menlo, he led the team in complete-game shutouts (6), was named NAIA West Pitcher of the Week, was selected to the All-NAIA West Team, was recognized as an All-American Athleader and NAIA Champion of Character, and helped the team to its first conference championship in school history by throwing a complete-game shutout against #9-ranked College of Idaho and saving the next day’s game.
Since then, Jimmy has played with great success in U.S. independent pro leagues, men’s senior leagues, and leagues in Austria, Australia, France, Germany, New Zealand, and Canada.
He has been an instructor at a private academy and a youth camp, a pitching coach with multiple overseas clubs, including head coach and manager of an 18-under team in Australia, and assistant coach for a junior team in Canada.
Jimmy is currently the Director of Operations for Baseball Jobs Overseas, Jimmy lives in Austria and is committed to helping players continue their careers and to increasing interest in baseball around the world.
