Positions (alt): Utl, RP
College: Claremont McKenna College
Played D3 College baseball for Claremont McKenna College in Los Angeles California. After college, I spent a season playing locally with the Los Angeles Legends (LABL) and the Los Angeles Raptors (PCBL). I am currently spending the 2021 season with UVV Utrecht in the Honkbal Overgangsklasse in Holland.
In college my fastball was 83-85 MPH, but after graduating, I increased my velocity to 88-91 and added a curveball. Between the PCBL and LABL (including playoffs), I went 7-0 while posting a 1.00 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, 12.2 K/9, 3.4 BB/9 over 45 innings with 61 strikeouts. I was named Championship CO-MVP of the PCBL and Championship MVP of the LABL.
I am currently spending the 2021 season pitching for UVV Utrecht. I will add my stats here throughout the season.
As a pitcher I throw Fastball, Changeup, Curveball, Slider. The fastball sits around 88-91 with run. The changeup is my next best pitch with good control and movement. My slider and curveball have very good movement (2500-2700 RPM) and the control is improving as I continue to throw them more often. As a batter I have good power and can play anywhere in the field (IF, OF, C).
Overseas Baseball Goals:
I’m looking for a team where I can have a large impact as a starting pitcher. My goal is to travel to new countries while continuing my baseball career. Eventually I would like to compete in some of the top overseas leagues such as in Japan, Korea, or Australia.
