Jimmy Carter was an aggressive, feared, left-handed hitter with stadium power who hit for both power and average as a 1st baseman, catcher and right fielder.  Jimmy held a career .673 batting average in the Conference USSSA, and overall batted .700 and clubbed over 1,000 homeruns during a 14-year career.   After cutting his teeth with Tuker’s in 2001 and winning a B State title, he spent the next three years with Freeze Concrete.  Freeze amassed no fewer than 17 Invitational, State, Regional and National titles during that period, including a U-Trip Great Lakes B National championship and a pair of A-AA NIT crowns.  The 2004 season was a breakout year for Jimmy, as he was named to six all-tournament teams, was All-State and All-Great Lakes Nationals, and ultimately selected the Greater Cincinnati B Player of the Year.  He spent the next two seasons with Watanabe Optical, winning his first Metro crown in 2005, and earning All-City Rookie of the Year in 2004 and back-to-back 1stTeam All-City honors.  Jimmy took a hiatus from Greater Cincinnati softball in 2007, finishing runner-up in the USSSA A World with KME/Chaney’s of California. Then for the next five years, he returned to the Queen City to lead Blitz/Watanabe to three Metro titles, approximately 20 top ten finishes in USSSA Men’s B, Major and Open NIT’s, and ultimately to a USSSA B World Tournament crown in 2011.  During that time, Jimmy was named to two Open Metro All-Tournament teams, was 1stTeam All-City three times and Greater Cincinnati Player of the Year in 2008, was picked to several NIT All-Tournament teams, a USSSA All-World team, and was a two-time Conference USSSA selection. He finished out his career with Pure Romance (2013-2014), Headlines (2015), and TG/Red’s Astros/Headlines/K & G/Worth (2016).
