I have grown as a player and a person throughout the many years I have played baseball. My team has been on the losing end this past year, and unfortunately did not make the playoffs in Vermont. Although, most of the games we did win last season were supported by my pitching and me helping pull the team together to perform better. They reacted to how I pitched, I gave them hope of a win everytime I stepped onto the mound. I believe that I could carry that over into college as well. I also believe that I am ready to compete at the next level. I want to become better, I want to throw harder, I want to give it my best every single time I step onto the field, and most importantly I want to represent whoever I play for the best I can. I have been studying hard in school and also wish to achieve a higher education while playing the sport I love. I have been playing ever since I could pick up a ball, and I wish to continue to play.
