My name is Connor Christenson. I am currently a sophomore attending Moeller High School. I made the freshman team but we didn’t have a freshman season, like most around the country. I play middle infield and pitch. My desire to play baseball started when I went to my first MLB game at 4 years old. As we watched the game, I pointed to the field and told my dad that I wanted to play out there someday. Ever since then, I have worked out harder than ever, both physically and mentally.
I want to play college baseball because I love the sport and want to continue playing after high school. I enjoy the teamwork, comradery, and pressure to perform. Ever since I picked up a baseball and a bat, I have never put them down. While others may think drills are boring, I absolutely love baseball drills. Some have said that playing at the collegiate or professional level is too difficult to do, however, it’s something that I want to do which is why I am working hard to accomplish my goals. In fact, my motto is, “No one will out-work me, no one will out-hustle me, and no one will ever put in more effort than me, on and off the field”.
After watching many older kids be blessed with the opportunity to play college baseball, I want that opportunity too. I spend countless hours in the gym, in the cages, and on the field. I study hard for good grades, and I am a positive supporter of my teammates. I put in 100% effort every day, not only so that I can achieve my dream to play college baseball, but because it is what I love to do.
