I was introduced to the game at 6 years old and instantaneously fell in love with it. Baseball has played one of the biggest roles in my life, which is why playing at the college level is a priority of mine. My two major aspirations in life thus far are academics and playing baseball at the next level.
I am a good candidate for baseball programs due to one major factor, GRIT. I know what it is like to struggle and come out on top. When I was younger, I didn't make academics a priority. I would much rather throw a ball with my friends, than do homework and study. But I soon realized that you can't really do one well, without the other. Studying and homework take discipline and time management as does baseball. So I decided to focus on academics. I was able to bring my grades up to all A's with a bit of hard work. I now know that focus and time management pays off and with diligence, I am capable of anything I set my mind to. Additionally, I am a team leader. I am always early to practice and one of the last ones out of the weight room after practice.
I am also adaptable. In my baseball career, I have had many different coaches. Each one comes with a different way of doing things. I have been able to easily adapt to the advice I am given, and put it all into one in order to be the best possible baseball player and recruit I can be.
I come from a science background with both my parents being doctors and research is in my blood. This has been beneficial towards my baseball aspirations because I study opposing players in order to make predictions in tendencies which better my chances of succeeding against opponents. There was never a game that I didn't ask my parents to video me pitching, batting, fielding in order to get better. I know that I am a good candidate for your program because I will not only bring my skill, but also my leadership, my scholarship and my work ethic.
