Jason Lee "Jay" Payton (born November 22, 1972 in Zanesville, Ohio) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder. He has played for the New York Mets (1998-2002), Colorado Rockies (2002-2003), San Diego Padres (2004), Boston Red Sox (2005), Oakland Athletics (2005-2006) Baltimore Orioles (2007-2008) and the Colorado Rockies in 2010. He bats and throws right-handed. Payton is an opposite-field hitter with some power. As a runner, he has decent instincts and great speed, but does not steal many bases. Defensively, he is a solid outfielder with an above average arm, and his quickness getting rid of the ball helps him hold baserunners on the base paths. He can play all three positions in the outfield. Jay lives in Oklahoma during the offseason and has a son named Preston who was born in July 2004. He is currently serving as an in game analyst with ESPNU for college baseball.
