Blue Anchors Sign OF Jordan Lee
Alexandria,Minn – The Alexandria Blue Anchors, a member of the Northwoods League, have announced the signing of outfielder Jordan Lee for the 2014 season.
Lee, comes to the Blue Anchors from Texas A&M Corpus Christi and will join fellow Islander Lukas Hermanson in Alexandria this summer. The junior is off to a good start this season playing in all 17 games while hitting .283 with 9 stolen bases. As a freshman Jordan led the Islanders in batting average, hitting .333 in 48 games.
“Jordan has been an everyday starter since about game ten of his freshman year,” says Scott Malone, head coach, Texas A&M Corpus Christi. “A Carl Crawford type player that can hit for average, really run, and play defense. Jordan should have a huge junior year and I have no doubt his teammates will vote him to be a captain as a senior.”
Jordan is looking forward to his time here in Alexandria.
“I am excited about playing in the Northwoods League. Every college baseball player in the nation has heard about all the big leaguers that have established themselves there,” says Lee. “To have the opportunity this summer to play for the Blue Anchors is something I’m looking forward to.”
Originally from Houston, Texas, Jordan was born May 2nd, 1993. He first picked up the game of baseball at age two when he started swinging a bat. When not on the baseball field he enjoys spending time fishing and going to the movies.
The Blue Anchors will start the 2014 season on Tuesday May 27th at home versus the Mankato MoonDogs.
