I began playing baseball when I was 3 years old. My parents signed me up as parents do for their kids. I participated and had a great experience and I've played every summer since. In high school I was cut my Freshman year and again as a Sophomore. As devastating as it was this flipped a switch in my brain and baseball became everything to me. I worked my tail off and made the team my Junior year. Baseball has taught me about mental toughness and helped me grow into a mature, young man. The biggest lesson I've learned is to assess a bad throw or at bat, forgetting is key and don't let it effect the next play. Move forward and do it better the next time. Having always been a catcher, I assume the role of leading on and off the field. My goal and passion is to study medicine and play baseball in college.
