Former Putnam City North pitcher Jace James signs with Missouri
Former Putnam City North baseball player Jace James has taken the next step in his baseball career, signing with Missouri last week.
James, a 2011 PC North grad, played last season at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, where he was 4-0 with a 1.59 earned-run average and 10 saves in 23 appearances.
James allowed 18 hits and six walks with 39 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings. He gave up only three extra-base hits, and opponents batted just .171 against him. He will be classified as a sophomore next season at Missouri.
James was a Big All-City first-team selection as a senior at PC North in the spring of 2011, going 8-2 with a 1.77 ERA and 86 strikeouts. He also played infield, hitting five home runs and driving in 46 runs, playing a huge role in getting the Panthers to the state tournament.
In addition, he was a two-year starter at quarterback for the Panthers football team, guiding them to the playoffs in 2009.
