Hi, my name is Ethan Hear and I attend Archbishop Moeller High school in Cincinnati, Ohio. I am a member of the class of 2020. Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little bit about me.
Making my Freshman Baseball team at Archbishop Moeller High School was a great honor, because the number of players trying out was the largest in many years. I also made JV last year.
At Moeller, there is a "House System" instead of a student governance. Students from all grades are divided into separate groups called “Houses” with approximately 165 students. I am the House Captain for my Junior class and also was House Captain during my Sophomore year. I made the Honor roll my Freshman, Sophomore and Junior years. I am a peer tutor for math. Additionally, I work part time at Dick's Sporting Goods and provide volunteer services.
There are a lot of things that I do to keep myself active, fit and motivated to play baseball and be the best I can be. I work hard at keeping a good attitude, making good grades, batting/pitching practice, conditioning, weight training, and speed/agility.
Here is the kind of player that I am: I try to be the first guy to practice, and I am usually the last to leave. At the plate, I'm not afraid to make adjustments . I like to stretch singles into doubles , and striking out isn't on my list of favorite things to do. Fielding is a strong suit of mine, and I'm comfortable in the infield or outfield. If strike out, I do not complain or sulk. I know I have to improve something to do better next time.
In college, my major interest is to study Athletic Training. I would also like to take some History courses because it is interesting. The most influential person in my college decision is myself.
No matter where baseball takes me in life I've learned something important. Being a part of a team has prepared me for life. Bringing the best that I can to a team and helping to bring out the best in others is what makes a team successful. Working with a team is a skill that can be used in so many aspects of life and I'm proud to say that I have felt like a valuable member of all of the teams I have been on, past and present. I've been lucky to work with coaches from Little League to High School, who have motivated me and helped me improve. It is my goal to play baseball in college and hopefully professionally someday.
