My name is Tristen Leone but behind my name I take into consideration what I have went through to even be able to have you view this statement. Over my 10 plus years playing this lovely sport I have overcome judgment and remarks that still stick with me to this day, they always will. Every critic has been my motivation and I thank all of the negative that I have been through because it led me to where I am today as not only a player but an individual. As a lefty pitcher growing up I always felt as if movement was something that came natural when pitching, especially my 2-seam fastball. The movement on that pitch and others is what truly has helped me in my success through little league to now high school varsity ball. Speaking of high school baseball, I've been on varsity since my freshman year and the 13 strikeout win I had in my team's tournament that year truly helped me in seeking my true potential. With everything I have been through and continue to go through will bring great roads ahead. I thought Id just write this to get the point across that I am aspiring to be the best me both on and off the field as well as always staying humble with good and bad.
