James "Big Country Gilfedder" played for Yucaipa HS his senior year, 2020. On January 30th, 2021, while attending Lyon College (Bastesville, Arkansas) we learned of his tragic death. "Gilly" was a kind and charismatic young man who was a team favorite and genuine friend to many. 

"Big Country, I enjoyed our talks about baseball, trucks, county music and life...you have forever impacted me with your big heart and kindness."

God Speed Gilly-
