Hi, my name is Will Oates. I am currently a Sophomore in the class of 2023 at Heritage Academy located in Hagerstown, Maryland. I play on the 17u Frederick Hustlers Platinum out of Frederick, Maryland. My dream of playing at the college level started when I was 7 years old, and since then, I’ve wanted to make it a reality.
One thing that has really inspired me to have a love for the game of baseball is my mother. Back in 2014, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Watching her go through that was very painful at times. Eventually in 2015, the cancer took over her. She passed away January 7th, 2015. The one, most import thing I took away from watching her go through this, she never gave up. That has since then inspired me through anything I do to be like her.
