Although most sports require both physical and mental toughness, I'm most passionate about baseball. No, it's not constant action like football or basketball. And you don't have to be the strongest or tallest person to play. But one thing it is... is difficult. Trying to hit a 95 mph fastball or 85 mph curve ball/slider from 60 feet away might be the most difficult thing to do in all of sports. I like the challenge that baseball presents.
In terms of my collegiate aspirations, I really don't know what I want to do or be at this point in my life. I guess I would say my favorite subject right now is social studies/history. I like learning about why and how things happened in the past, and how I might be able to apply the lessons learned to my life today. I grew up with an appreciation for places and people that are different from where and who I am right now. I've traveled to Germany a handful of times to visit relatives (my Dad's mother is German), and each time I've come back with a new perspective on life, and what aspects of it are most important.
Playing college baseball is definitely a goal of mine, but just as important to me is finding the right fit with respect to the overall collegiate experience: coaches, teammates, teachers, and the surrounding community. I think a make or break for me is finding a coach that is obviously knowledgeable about the sport and gets the most out of my skill set, but also cares about the development of the person and not just the player. Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me.
