Kyle Jamison has returned home to hone skills for Spradley Collegians

Kyle Jamison is a smooth operator at shortstop for the Pueblo Spradley Collegians baseball team; so much so that his head coach calls him “a freak.”

Jamison is a former Pueblo West High School player who helped the Cyclones to the Class 4A state championship in 2017.

He went on to play at Garden City (Kan.) Community College and is entering his junior season at the University of Mary in North Dakota, but is keeping active playing summer ball for the Collegians in Pueblo.

“One of the most gifted athletes I’ve ever coached, ever seen step on the field,” said Collegians head coach Tony Pechek, who was part of that Pueblo West championship run as an assistant coach.

“What he lacks in size he makes up in his ability. He does so many little things well. He’s a 5-foot-9 person in a 6-2 body.”

Jamison has always been known as a “gamer.” He’s a player with an old-school attitude and work ethic who oozes talent.

He played shortstop in high school and junior college, the position he now plays for Spradley, and has played outfield for the University of Mary.

Jamison explained why he chose the junior college path for his baseball career, saying his goal was to go out and “compete against good competition.”

“My dad played at a juco. He always told me that’s the best route because you get that experience and learn a lot more about the game, and the speed of it,” Jamison said.

“It always helped me mentally. Going to juco helped me get through the trials and tribulations.”

Pechek said he’s seen Jamison mature over the years.
