Jack Bennett - Player
Inducted in 2017
Jack was a star pitcher for Cambridge High School that did not escape the notice of Fred Lucas, business manager of the minor league Cambridge Dodgers. Lucas had played in a previous version of the Class D Eastern Shore League, and had a good eye for talent as the young right hander posted a 31 and 5 record in high school, and then further distinguished himself in Junior Legion baseball and the Marydel League. A slight 6 foot 1 inch right hander, Bennett started his four year professional career in his hometown of Cambridge. In addition to Cambridge, Jack spent time playing for Oak Ridge/Hazard, and Big Stone Gap of the Mountain State League, and Smithfield-Selma of the Tobacco State League. He compiled a record of 36 wins and 46 losses in 103 games during that time.
