James Clemens Jets Baseball dates to the spring of 2013, the first year of existence of the new school. Shane Medlen led the Jets that year to a respectable 14-24 record in the regular season, and finished with a flourish, winning the area championship with mostly underclassmen - only 5 seniors and 4 juniors were on the team. In the first round of the playoffs, the Jets pushed a strong Sparkman team to 3 games. Firsts that year for the team include Eric Patterson collecting the first hit, Adam Brown clouting the first home run and Curtis Towers recording the first pitching win. Coach Medlen skippered the team for its first four years, making two playoff appearances – the Jets were Area runner-up in 2015.
Coach Cory Hamrick led the Jets during 2017-2018. In his last season, the Jets finished with the most wins in team history, going 26-17, culminating in a playoff run to the 7A state quarterfinals, including the first playoff series win in team history.
Coach Johnny Johnson took the helm for the 2019 season, leading the team to 20 wins and a winning record in his first season. Under Coach Johnson's leadership, James Clemens High School Baseball has been ranked in the State's Top 10 two of the three non-Covid seasons, set a school record for wins in a season (27), and he became the schools all-time winningest coach in 2022. In his four seasons as head coach, 11 of his Jets players have gone on to college baseball opportunities.
