This season, I am 2-3 at the plate. A coach may ask, "why do you have so few at bats?" I was unfortunately injured in my first game of the season, after taking a foul ball to the head while catching. I was admitted to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia for the next 40 hours, but was fortunately discharged after that. When I was discharged, the first thing I wanted to know was "how did my team do, did we win, did the backup catcher do OK?" Fortunately all the answers were yes, my team won and the back-up did just fine. I was sidelined for four weeks after rehabbing, regaining weight healthily and trying to match my early season form and last season form. I have cheered my team on from the dug-out, worked hard and, my first game coming up soon, despite my only two hits in three at bats, I am getting the start- my coaches, both JV and Varsity believe my work ethic is that of a pro, and my desire to win and get better is that of a superstar. A college coach should see this in me, because I always want to be the best. Granted,I am not always the best, but I see that and from that I build my skills and show that I have the talent to be the best. Last season for my travel team, I hit an impressive .450 with 15 doubles, and 10 additional extra-base hits. This season I am aiming to match those stats and or improve in a harder level (16u Showcase) and show coaches I am something to watch, and someone to talk to and think about bringing into his program. What differs me from other players and what coaches see most, is my effort and intensity. My early season injury did hold me back, but from it I grew as a person, and a player, and I will show that this season.
