Hello, my name is Ian Korn and ever since I can remember I have been playing baseball. My parents started me at the age of 4 and I have never looked back. Ever since I first stepped on the field, I knew that I wanted to play baseball for the rest of my life. I aspire to be the best on and off the field. I work hard every day to better my self to improve my game. I came up through the Little League ranks including winning two district titles and one sectional runner-up title. I recently started playing travel ball with Backyard University Gamers. When I was seven years old, the first year for kid pitching, one of my coaches noticed my natural abilities and took me under his wing and I have been a pitcher ever since. When I am not pitching I tend to be a utility player with my coaches using me in whatever position is needed.
I believe firmly that character is everything both on and off the field and want to be part of an athletic program where integrity and hard work pay off. I can attribute my success thus far to my hard work and determination but at the same time, I have been fortunate enough to have a family that instills a healthy work ethic and strong moral values, coaches that have shown me the joy of winning and the importance of losing and teammates that cheer each other on and don't give up even under the worst conditions. I am always looking to improve my baseball skills, but what most sets me apart from others, is that I thrive in crisis situations with the game on the line. Throughout my career, I have delivered in the clutch and my previous game history can attest to that. Always composed on the mound, in the field, or at the plate no matter what the situation, I constantly strive to be successful. All in all, my strengths are consistently working to the best of my ability and possessing a healthy competitiveness in the classroom as well as on the field.
I'm looking for a program that will be a good fit for me athletically as well as academically. I believe I not only have the talent to compete for a college team, but the character, work-ethic, and leadership skills to make an immediate impact on your program.
