Baseball has always been a huge part of my life! As a newborn, I spent my first summer on the road while my 12-year-old brother won States in Michigan with my dad as the coach. My parents could tell early on that I couldn’t wait to get on the field myself and when I was very young, I began my journey as a baseball player. I have always been a leader on every team I’ve played on and it is important to me to keep the moral of the players positive no matter what is going on in the game. I pride myself on good sportsmanship and working together with my teammates to make us the best that we can be on and off the field. I am a strong 1st baseman who rarely lets the ball get away from me and I’ve played some 3rd base and catcher as well. My biggest asset is that I am a powerful hitter. I can pull the ball and go opposite field and I'm a strong multiple base hitter. My batting average as a freshman and sophomore led the team as well as my number of RBI’s and on base percentage. Unfortunately, I broke my leg during my first at bat for summer baseball during my junior year sliding into 2nd base so my stats from last year aren't the normal for me. I have worked extremely hard for the past 9 months to heal and strengthen my leg and I'm ready for the season. In the classroom I work extremely hard to be a good student and I’m not afraid to ask for help if I need it. Since elementary, I have been in many teacher chosen leadership positions and clubs at school and at church where I do community service and help people of all ages. I hope to continue doing those services in college. I would love the opportunity to share more about who I am and how I may be a good addition to a college team.
