Testimonials

Brad Neffendorf

Tennessee Wesleyan

He's a left-handed arm that's shown good arm speed, A-plus breaking pitch and an above-average change-up that continues to develop.

Aaron is extremely competitive and an individual who understands who he is and what he needs on a daily basis in order to be successful, which is something that can be rare to find anymore.

I truly believe Aaron will be extremely successful, he has a mix of pitches that can get most hitters out at any level, and with a continued day-by-day workload, that will further his development. He has a chance to take off.
