Catcher/first baseman Michael Ambort set a Lamar record with 18 homers in 2005, then missed most of the 2006 season after having Tommy John surgery. He returned this spring and set the school mark for career homers (38), but he spent more time at first base than behind the plate. As a switch-hitter with power, he always was viewed as an offensive catcher, and he should be able to resume that role in pro ball. His arm strength and receiving skills are adequate.
