Antonio has been described as one who is very diligent and smart with his work. He is a quiet leader in the dugout, leads by example, and is not afraid to communicate issues in a respectful manner.

Antonio wants to go overseas and extend his playing career. In addition, he would like to eventually develop into a coach, front office member or team director. He says, “I always felt that if I didn’t play college baseball, I would be studying abroad, and I feel like this could fill that gap that I didn’t get to experience.”
