As a Kid I played baseball, basketball, and football. My Freshman year I made the freshman basketball team and played both A and B team. When baseball tryouts came I didn't have the greatest tryout, and it landed me on the freshman team. We didn't get to play a game because of Covid, and we only got a week of practice before we got shut down. I was very displeased in where I was, I felt that I didn't give my best effort and because of that something needed to change. I learned that the practicing two times a weak with your club team wasn't enough for me to play at my highest ability. I then started going up to my club teams facility four to six times a week putting in an hour to three hours of solid work hitting on the tee, lifting weights, running, and fielding baseballs. I've learned that the people who work hard and don't give up, or listen to negativity are the people who succeed. So, i put my head down in school so i don't have to do any homework, so after school i go workout, and perfect my craft at baseball.
I feel that I have improved incredibly in the past year and a half. I love the game of baseball not just for the energy and passion there is in it, but also the lessons it has taught me to advance in life. I hope to continue my baseball career into college and maybe beyond college, because that's the dream. At this point in my career I can't imagine not waking up ready to hit another round of baseballs, take another round of fielding baseballs, another bullpen to catch, even just playing catch is so much more fun than sitting in an office all day. But if I can't extend my baseball career past college then I hope it will help me pursue academic career in architecture for my future job. I spent a few weeks in the summer of 2021 job shadowing architects in the KC area and feel that could be my next passion. I feel like baseball opens many more doors than the average person gets. Baseball is a way out for many people and it's a privilege to play. And i'm so glad i get that privilege everyday.
