My name is Garrett West. It would be a blessing and a dream come true to reach my goal of playing baseball in college and beyond. My family has always told me that hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard, and I try to carry this into all aspects of my life. If you ask my coaches or teammates, they will all tell you that I am determined and will not shy away from working hard to achieve what is needed for the team. I am a leader and pride myself on helping my teammates get through adversity and tough situations.
A college coach should want me on their team because I am a good hitter that can play infield, outfield and pitch. I have been fortunate to play in a lot of big moments in games and always have my attitude and emotions under control. I am also becoming a real student of the game. From the old school principles to the new school analytics and technologies, I have and will always strive to be the best version of myself.
