JIM TUCKER - MANAGER 15U - EMAIL

Coach Tucker is entering his second season as manager of the 15U Chiefs. Jim spent one year as pitching coach for the 17U team before taking the reigns of his own team in 2014 with the 14U Chiefs. Coach Tucker has enjoyed his time as an assistant coach with the Indiana Saints and has also served as a member of the coaching staff at Purdue University Calumet during their first year of competition. Jim was in charge of the pitching staff during his duties with the Peregrines.

Prior to coaching, Tucker played four years at the Varsity level at Calumet High School in Gary, Indiana. He earned All-Conference Honors his final three years along with an All- Area nod his senior season. Tucker played his summer ball at Riverside Park with the Indiana Chiefs from 2006-2008 before committing to play at Chicago State University.


Coach Tucker spent five years at Division I Chicago State University. While pitching for the Cougars, Jim spent his junior season sidelined for Tommy John surgery. Prior to the surgery, Coach Tucker had a highlight win, tossing a complete game victory against 12th ranked Pepperdine in Malibu, California during his freshman campaign. After successfully rebounding from Tommy John surgery, Tucker was part of a pitching staff that warranted the lowest E.R.A in over 20 years at Chicago State.


Coach Tucker is engaged to Mysta Townsell and currently resides in Gary, Indiana. He teaches English/ Language Arts at St. Mary's Catholic Community School in Crown Point, IN.
