Anne Chamberlain, team and IBL historian notes "He was the IBL rookie of the year in 1975. Jamie was a 5 time IBL all star, batting champ twice and was named to the IBL's Top 100. In 1981, he was the named MVP in the playoffs (Brantford won the championship that season). He retired but came back to manage the Sox in 1983 & 1984. He was well respected when he turned his talents to umpiring afterwards."
