The game of baseball has always been a huge part of my life. Having played baseball since I was four years old, these years of experience helped mold me into the person and player I am today. Throughout the years, the game of baseball has taught me many outstanding lessons and qualities that would make me a strong asset for your team.
I began playing travel baseball in Texas at age 8 and played aggressive schedules of 9-10 months per year. Being an only child, baseball taught me many life lessons including the value of teamwork, a very important life skill. The team must work together in order to reach success. Additionally, it was my driver to become very self-disciplined to condition and train on my own. It has given me a passion to improve as a player and find ways I could aid and contribute to my team’s success. Baseball has also taught me how to mentally move on, every at bat being a new opportunity, learning to reset and concentrate on the next opportunity at the plate. Pitching presents a different set of challenges. I don’t always agree with the call behind the plate, but I have learned to not show my emotions and continue to play the game. This was definitely the harder lesson to learn but one that I continue to work on each season.
Beginning as a Freshman in high school, I played short stop, third base and pitcher and I am a switch hitter. As a Sophomore, I played short stop and second base for Junior Varsity and pitched for Varsity. I have maintained a 3.8 GPA during these two years. I played travel ball in the Fall 2019 and the summer 2020 for CIL in Denver, Colorado, for Coach Al Blesser. Currently, I am playing for the Hit After Hit Outlaws in Nashville, Tennessee, for Coach Chris Parker.
I feel I would bring good character, strong mental and moral qualities to your team. I have a good-natured personality and I get along very well with my coaches and my teammates. I have a positive attitude, am always smiling and believe in encouraging others. Most importantly, I am a very coachable athlete and believe there are always areas to grow and improve each day therefore I can take and follow directions very well. These are strong attributes I have learned and attained during my years of playing baseball.
I am looking forward to finding a school that will allow me the opportunity to have a well-rounded college experience consisting of a great education and to follow my lifelong dream of playing baseball at the college level.
