Baseball has been my key to life. I have been playing baseball since I was six years old. Baseball enhances my life by teaching me clarity, focus, and confidence. Through my love of baseball, I understand the true meaning of being part of a team, developing my interpersonal skills with my teammates and achieving common goals. I understand the importance of good grades and self discipline. I have been deeply rewarded by baseball and I feel fortunate to be able to pass some of my rewards on to younger players. I look forward to the future, my personal development and continuing to pursue my love of the game.
