JAMESTOWN, N.Y. - Center fielder Skyler Valentine will be the lone returnee among outfielders, but a newcomer may be more familiar to local fans when the Jamestown Jammers open their Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League schedule next month.
Valentine, a junior at the University of Texas-San Antonio, is hitting .226 this season. The Pearland, Texas native has six doubles and five home runs on the season while he has driven in 26 runs and scored 27. Valentine has stolen three bases and has made just six errors on 109 chances in the outfield for the Roadrunners. As a PGCBL all-star last summer, Valentine hit .314 with 10 doubles and two home runs while driving in 19 runs and stealing 15 bases.
Collin Stack, a Jamestown native and Maple Grove High School graduate, will join Valentine in the Jammers’ outfield. The Monroe Community College transfer is hitting .357 with three doubles and a triple while driving in 18 runs and scoring 22 runs this spring at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County. Stack has also stolen five bases while making just two errors in 54 chances in the field.
