Tim Lee: Versatile Shortstop/RHP out of California Seeking Team for 2018 Season
I have known Tim Lee for over 10 years and can speak firsthand of his abilities. He is a quick and athletic two-way player who can compete for any position on the field. He takes pride in his defensive abilities; with his quick hands and feet, he is perfect for the middle infield. His main position is shortstop, but has experience pitching, catching, playing 2nd base and center field. In the outfield, Tim is fast and can get good reads off the bat which allow him to cut off balls in the gap. On the mound, Tim can be used as a starter or a reliever. He throws a four-seam, two-seam, slider, and changeup, each of which he can throw for strikes. With the bat, he can be slotted in at the top of a lineup since he is fast, gets on base and can steal some bags. He has the ability to hit the ball to all parts of the field and can occasionally hit the ball into the gap, down the line, or over the fence.
Growing up in San Leandro, California, Tim started playing baseball as soon as he could walk. He was passionate about the game and as a result, he became good quite quickly. Throughout his youth, Tim won numerous MVP awards, made every All-Star Team and really made a name for himself. To this day, Tim is still considered a legend around Washington Manor baseball. In 2007, Tim was selected for the Alameda World Team where he competed against teams from South Korea, Mexico, Australia, Puerto Rico, and Chinese Taipei. He continued playing through high school and competitive travel ball up until he reached college.
Coming out of high school, Tim received numerous offers to play college baseball. He was forced to make a decision between playing baseball and pursuing a career in nutrition. He decided to take a step away from the game to focus on his academics. Now that he has graduated from college and received both his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees, Tim is looking to play baseball again and travel a bit before starting his professional career in sports nutrition. If possible, he would be willing to create a performance nutrition plan for his team to make sure they’re fit throughout the season.
This past summer, Tim played for the Castro Valley Braves in the Tri-Valley MSBL. He held a 1.13 ERA through 24 innings and batted .291 through 55 AB’s. Now that he is back playing and feels good, he wants to pursue an opportunity overseas for the 2018 season. He is looking to travel the world and experience new cultures. He is currently available and would like to find a team who can offer accommodation and a salary to cover basic living expenses.

It has been my pleasure to have known Tim since I first met him 13 years ago at Canyon Middle School in Castro Valley. He was and is, an all-around athlete: competing in Football, Basketball and Baseball. Baseball is his passion. He is a student of the game, communicates well with his teammates. Tim is like having a coach on the field. He is the total “Competitor”.
Tim has played in the Tri-Valley Men’s Senior Baseball League for the past 4 years. He has played middle INF mainly at SS and has been our Closer. He has great command of the plate, locates his mid-80’s Fastball consistently. Allows very few BB’s. He has good break on his curve and slider. He has great mound presence and works quickly and effectively. Above average Hitter, who uses the entire field.
Tim is always working on his game, be it on the field, Bull Pen or in the cage. He is a fine young man! He would be a great addition to your program. If you would like to discuss further, don’t hesitate to contact me.

I have coached Tim Lee for 5 years starting when he was a junior in high school until he finished the collegiate team I coached. Tim is a leader. He played mainly short stop for me and hit in the lead off spot. He played one year in left field for me and quietly became one of the best outfielders on any of my rosters. Tim has a little bit of everything, power, speed, arm, fielding, and best of all baseball IQ.
I have known Tim a long time and am happy to call him a friend. You only come across players that can do it all and have a passion for the game, like Tim does, a few times, and I was appreciative to have coached him.
Tim is looking for a team for the 2018 season in Europe or Canada. If the team can cover accommodation and a monthly salary, he may be willing to pay for his flight. He is open to hearing all offers.
