The main reason for my interest is to primarily expand my abilities and knowledge about baseball but also to improve my skills and to get the full experience of college baseball in the US, every Australian baseball player's dream. I've been around baseball since the age of 4 and have loved it ever since. I'm a very driven person and if I want something I'll get it, regardless of how difficult it may prove. Being a student in a Sports Academy in Melbourne has very much improved my athletic abilities as well as my academic performance. The academic performances must be at a high standard to remain in the academy and thus I've kept that promise.
