Ted Jamison played baseball at Lipscomb from 1969-1972. Ted wasted little time making an immediate impact on the Bison Baseball program, as he broke the school single season record for stolen bases during his freshman season. During Ted’s career he would also break his single season stolen base record during his junior year when he finished with 39 stolen bases, a record that still stands to date. With Ted leading the way, the Bisons would experience the greatest success in school history. In 1969 the Bisons would set a school record with 29 wins. In 1971 the Bisons would win 44 games and advance to the NAIA National Tournament for the first time in Lipscomb history, where they would finish in second place. The Miracle Bisons would again advance to the National Tournament in 1972 and for the second straight year finish in second place. Ted was named to the NAIA National All-Tournament team in 1971 and in 1972 t the National Championship he was presented with the Coaches Hustle Award. Since leaving Lipscomb, Ted has been just as successful in business serving as an Executive Vice President in the Telecommunications industry. Ted Jamison is considered by many one of the greatest players to ever wear a Bison uniform and will always be a member of the Miracle Bisons.
