Great Britain U19 national team third baseman and pitcher Jamie Gregory has joined the Herts Falcons.

He is the third signing for the club following the arrival of Abelardo Salas and Andrew Fulford earlier this year.

Gregory started his career with the Essex Redbacks as a member of the U17 league team, and at the age of 16 he was already a member of the Redbacks first team.

His talent was recognised early by the Great Britain national team and he was added to the GB U19 squad for a tour of South Africa.

Gregory made his debut in the National Baseball League in 2013 with the Essex Arrows. He was utilised as a relief pitcher but played predominantly at third base.

He had a batting average of .261 and a slugging average of .333, driving in 12 runs.
