Head coach Tim Corbin on Bulger: “Jack is a very consistent young man in everything that he does on campus. He is a tremendous student, a great worker on the field and in the weight room. Jack cross-trained at several positions last season but will spend more time at the catching position this season. He has a strong baseball acumen and the ability to be a very good offensive player. Low-maintenance young man.”
