All my life I have been surrounded by hard working, dedicated parents who have always wanted the best for me. They may not be able to provide the luxuries that other kids have, but they provided me a guide on how to live life. At a very young age they introduced me to baseball and my love for the sport blossomed ever since. I was lucky enough to be part of a hardworking travel team who won many tournaments and games. At the age of 14 losing in the Babe Ruth World Series in Texas made a very big impact on my mindset, showing me that there will always be someone better than you and in order to become the best, you need to give it your all every time you step on the field.
Since my freshman year, my high school baseball program has had some rough years, having only 19 kids on the team in total the past three years including junior varsity and varsity . Even though we are not the best I myself want to be the best on and off the field. Everyday I dedicate my time by staying after practice, doing drills at home, and even participating in two other sports while keeping my academics on track. Whenever my family needs my help I am there whether it's watching my little sister or helping out at our family hydraulic shop. After high school I plan on searching for programs that are a perfect fit at the next level of baseball and offer a good education that fits my major.
