The 2018 Charlottesville Tom Sox are welcoming back another well known, local product…Jack Morris, outfielder, North Greenville (SC) University.
Morris played with the Tom Sox in 2016 when he was at Liberty University. That summer, he led our team in 6 offensive categories: batting average (.309); stolen bases (12); runs (23); on-base percentage (.420); OPS (.810); and plate appearances (162). He can and has played all 3 outfield positions.
Prior to his time at Liberty, the Ruckersville native attended William Monroe High School and graduated from The Miller School. In 2 years at Liberty, he played in 72 games, hitting .253 with a .368 OBP, 4 home runs, and 8 doubles.
Tom Sox GM Jeff Burton had this to say about the 5’10; 180 pounder… “Jack is a pro. He shows up at the park ready to do his business the right way. He takes batting practice with a purpose. He shags baseballs with a purpose. His at-bats and his innings in the field have a purpose. His life is purposeful. I love that about him. He is going to love the culture of our organization under Coach Hunt, and Coach Hunt and our coaching staff are going to love him. We couldn’t be more excited about bringing this familiar face back to our organization.”
Morris said “playing in Charlottesville is something I always look forward to.
The people who have supported me since I first started playing can come and watch and just seeing familiar faces in the stands is a great feeling.”
Welcome back to the Tom Sox, Jack Morris.
