    Jake Lamb: biography

    Jake Lamb is a professional baseball player who currently plays as a third baseman for the Los Angeles Angels in Major League Baseball (MLB).

    Childhood and youth

    Jake Lamb was born on October 9, 1990, in Seattle, Washington. He grew up in the nearby suburb of Queen Anne, where he began playing baseball at a young age. Lamb attended Bishop Blanchet High School, where he played baseball and was a standout player on the school's varsity team.

    During his high school career, Lamb was named to the All-State team and helped lead Bishop Blanchet to a state championship in his senior year. After graduating in 2009, Lamb went on to attend the University of Washington, where he continued to play baseball.

    As a college player, Lamb was a key member of the University of Washington baseball team, playing primarily at third base. In his sophomore year, he led the team in home runs and was named to the All-Pac-12 team. He continued to improve over the next two years, and in his senior year, he hit .426 with 20 home runs and was named the Pac-12 Player of the Year.

    Lamb's success at the collegiate level helped him get drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 6th round of the 2012 MLB draft.

    Basketball career

    Jake Lamb began his professional baseball career in 2012, after being drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 6th round of the MLB draft. He spent the next two years working his way up through the Diamondbacks' minor league system, playing for several different teams and earning a reputation as a power hitter.

    Lamb made his MLB debut with the Diamondbacks in 2014, playing in 37 games and hitting .230 with four home runs. He continued to improve over the next few years, becoming one of the Diamondbacks' top offensive players. In 2016, he hit .249 with 29 home runs and 91 RBIs, earning a spot on the National League All-Star team and finishing 8th in the NL MVP voting.

    Lamb continued to be a key player for the Diamondbacks over the next few seasons, but injuries and a decline in performance eventually led to his trade to the Oakland Athletics in 2020. Lamb struggled during his time with the Athletics, hitting just .193 with five home runs in 31 games before being released by the team.

    After being released by the Athletics, Lamb signed a contract with the Atlanta Braves in 2021. He played primarily as a backup infielder and pinch hitter for the Braves, hitting .221 with four home runs in 71 games. Despite his limited playing time, Lamb proved to be a valuable member of the Braves' roster, providing solid defense and timely hitting in key situations.

    After becoming a free agent, Lamb signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers on March 14, 2022. He began his time with the organization playing for their Triple-A affiliate, the Oklahoma City Dodgers. During his 61 games there, Lamb showed off his skills with a batting average of .290 and 15 home runs. On June 28, Lamb received the call up to the major leagues and joined the Dodgers' roster. He played in 25 games with the team, hitting .239 while contributing two home runs and four RBIs to their offensive effort.

    In a trade involving cash considerations, Lamb joined the Seattle Mariners on August 2, 2022. However, his time with the team was short-lived, as he was designated for assignment on September 21 and subsequently became a free agent on September 24.

    Lamb signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Angels on December 21, 2022. After starting the season in Triple-A, Lamb's contract was selected on March 29, 2023, earning him a spot on the Angels' opening day roster.

    Personal life

    Jake Lamb has kept his personal life relatively private throughout his career, but it is known that he is married to his wife, Hannah Maserjian.

    Lamb has also been involved in charitable efforts throughout his career, supporting causes such as childhood cancer research and disaster relief efforts. In 2019, he was named the Arizona Diamondbacks' nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award, which recognizes players who make a positive impact on their communities both on and off the field.

    Outside of baseball, Lamb is known to be an avid outdoorsman and enjoys activities such as fishing and hunting. He has also spoken openly about his love for country music and has even played guitar on occasion, often sharing photos and videos of his musical pursuits on social media.
