My name is Joel Alvarez and I attend Calvin Christian high school in Grandville Michigan and I am 15 years old and am currently a sophomore. My dream since I was a little boy has always been to play college baseball and then play professional baseball. I think that I am a great candidate for your team because I have great leadership skills as I have been apart of school student council in the past twice. I am also a very good team player I always make the team my first priority. Also I am a very hard worker and work hard outside of practice and I am always putting in extra work to improve myself as a player and teammate as I work with some of my teammates outside of practice. Now I would like to say what makes me different from all of your other recruits. What makes me different is that I am very self driven and will do whatever it takes to get myself to the next level also I am a very hard working person and I work hard in whatever I am doing whether it is baseball or school or work I am all about getting better and working hard. I am also a very friendly person and communicate well, with others and I enjoy being part of a team and building friendships and relationships that will last a lifetime. I am also a very vocal person and like to use being vocal as a way I can be a leader and I enjoy being a vocal leader and it is part of who I am and I believe that is one major way I can contribute to the team. Thank you for reading my personal statement.
