I have been interested in baseball since I have been 2 years old. Playing in the back yard with my grandpa. Through the years of baseball, I've come to realize that I have a strong determination. With my strong determination, I have to use that in my academics to push hard for my grades because I have severe dyslexia. I need to work twice as hard as others to get the grades. I feel that I have a calm characteristic that helps me on the mound when pitching in stressful situations.
