I love the sport of baseball; I have a lot of respect for the game, my teammates, and the coaches. I have been playing competitive baseball since I was young and I aspire to play the game for as long as I can. My parents have always supported me and pushed me to do my very best. This has influenced me not only in playing baseball but also in my life decisions. As a young boy I always choose a ball over toys and kept my parents busy with my many sports. As I grew older, I found my love for baseball and wanted to play all the time. I’ve learned that nothing is ever certain without iteration and that working hard for something you want is rewarded with accountability and respect. I value teamwork and fair criticism and I’m looking for a programs that not only will challenge me athletically, but academically as well.
