Jarrett Lee

Jarrett is entering his fifth season with the Nokona Baseball Program and is a junior (Class of 2017) at Medfield High School (Medfield, MA). Academically, he maintains a 3.75 / 4.0 GPA. Throughout his five-year tenure with Nokona Baseball, Jarrett has been a vital part of the success of his teams. A natural leader on and off the field, his work ethic, positive attitude, and drive to compete personify the core values of our program and constantly energize his team.

Jarrett is a top-of-the-lineup hitter with a high average with an equally high OBS percentage as a byproduct of both baseball savvy and great natural speed. He has quick hands, is one of the most versatile players in his age group and consistently shows his athleticism on the field. He has been a starter on his high school baseball team since his freshman year as a 14 year old. He is also a member of the National Honor Society and a starter on the high school varsity soccer team at Medfield High. This past season both the baseball and soccer teams were MIAA D2-South Finalists.

Jarrett makes time to complement his on-field commitment with off-field activities that speak to his devotion to community. He volunteers his time at the local food cupboard and is a member of the Boston Knights—a nonprofit organization whose goal is to unite Asian-Americans through networking, community service, and sports. He also volunteers his time in giving back to our younger players by helping at clinics and participating in practices for our younger teams. Over the years that we've worked with him, we've seen that he is an extremely hard worker and is willing to invest the time required to improve his game.

It has truly been our pleasure watching Jarrett develop into the role model and fine young athlete he has become, and we expect nothing but continued growth and success for him, both on and off the field.

Nokona Baseball teams with players of ages 10-14 years compete regionally in the Elite Baseball League (EBL), while the college prospect teams with players of ages 15-18 compete at a variety of college showcase events locally, regionally and nationally.

16U Chiefs Finish Undefeated At National Championships in Louisville

The 16U Nokona Chiefs had a remarkable 7-0 record at the 16U National Championships in held at the University of Louisville during the Fourth of July weekend, reaching the final four out of 96 teams competing. For more pictures, click here.

The Chiefs were led on the mound by four complete games, including an opening night no-hitter by Andrew Flint, who also picked up a second win on the final day of competition. Chris McGrory had a dominant performance on day two, helping set the stage for the Chiefs' tourney run.

Dan Chapski and Eric Mah finished pool play off with complete games of their own, including a win under the fireworks on July Fourth. That led to an epic playoff day on Sunday that saw the Chiefs go 3-0 thanks in large part to the bats of Dan Chapski (walk off homer), Blake Gallagher (homer in game two) and Chris Attisani. Chris Grome had added a bomb of his own earlier in the tournament.

Unfortunately, that is where the Chiefs' run ended, as the semi-finals and finals had been pushed back a day due to rain earlier in the tournament. The group had airplane flights home already booked which could not be changed. The 16U's outstanding performance was the result of a complete team effort, and saw a different player step up every day, up and down the lineup, to go along with tremendous pitching, defense and catching. It was terrific week the ballplayers will remember for years to come.
