First I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my statement. Baseball is a very important part of who I am and has been since my first game that my parents took me to in Atlanta when I was 3 months old . One of my future goals is to focus on playing at least 4 years of college baseball and work hard everyday to help my team win championships each year. My personal dream is to play at a high level college and one day play in the major league. My personal goals are to find a college that I can offer my pitching talents, outfield domination, encourage the goals of my fellow teammates and be an asset to the team as a whole.
I believe that baseball is not just what takes place on the field but also how I prepare days, weeks, and months before the game and evaluation of performance after the game. There is always room to try different things to get better or become stronger. I enjoy studying the behavior and success of other players and what can be learned from the experiences of others. I feel that I am a team player and enjoy working with fellow teammates to get better while challenging myself in all areas of baseball.
My work ethic is what makes me different in baseball from other recruits. High school practice is just one element in working toward being the baseball player I want to be. I try to work hard outside of what is asked of me. I have a membership to a local sports facility where I hit off a tee or have someone throwing to me at least three days a week. I also go daily to throw and practice my secondary pitches. I am also a member of a local gym where I have a personal pitching lift schedule I do everyday, I have a personal pitching coach I work with every week, a hitting coach I work with every week and I have coach friends at a local private college that I lift weights with several times a week along with pitching and hitting practice. I don't think you will find another person who loves and works as hard at baseball than me.
As an Eagle Scout, my character is based around honor. My focus is to do my best in all duties to God, my country, and to help others at all times while keeping myself physically, mentally and morally strong. Character can be measured by how you win and lose and what is done with both experiences to reach the next goal.
