My collegiate goals are to play baseball and in doing so get a valuable education for my future endeavors. I not only want to play baseball, but I want to be a valuable member in the program whether that means being a pitcher, outfielder, or playing whatever position the coach feels I can best help the team. I will strive to be a role model for the players coming into the program and also a leader that even the upperclassmen can look up to.
I aspire to play baseball at higher levels in college and possibly the majors. I want to be able to contribute to the team goal. I know I can affect the game in more than one way, either by being a good teammate through giving positive encouragement, throwing batting practice to teammates and helping them get better, or being on the field and being able to contribute my skills for the betterment of the team.
I am a student-athlete and as such my education is very important to me. I have proven to be an academically successful student. I work just as hard in the classroom as I do on the field. I approach school the same way I approach athletics. I am always looking for ways I can improve and push myself further so I can continue to become stronger and more strategic in my approach to life and to the game of baseball.
As a multiple sport athlete, there are many qualities from other sports that carry over into baseball. Some of these qualities would be my focused and zoned-in mindset, my preparation for games and my tenacious grit when in tough and competitive situations. Other qualities that I possess that make me a great candidate for your team are that I am a very coachable kid and am always open to instruction and criticism on how to improve, I face challenges head on, I strive to be a leader on and off the field, I give 100% all of the time, and I work on my skills independently outside of team time. I am a good influence and role model, a team leader, and a dependable and hard worker. I will be loyal to the coaches and team goals and will work hard academically and athletically to contribute to a successful program.
