RHP from top NAIA program seeking overseas start
Name: Brandon Desjardins
DOB: July 3, 1996
Date Available: October 1, 2019
Positions (alt): RP
College: Bellevue University
I am a baseball player who is self taught who has never been given real instruction on how to pitch or hit so I am a hard working individual who studies a lot of mechanics myself and tries to work on myself and others. I bring a good work ethic and have always tried to help the others around me when they are in need of advise. I can fill any role in the rotation or bullpen and have had success with all of them over the years and also field my position well. Over the years I have been a part of successful teams with the most recent going to the NAIA World Series in 2019 with Bellevue University and winning the WCBL championship with the Okotoks Dawgs in 2019.
I have know Brandon for 5 years and coached him for 2 full season before he went to college. Brandon has always been a respectful, hardworking player who fit in well with our teams and coaching staffs. Quiet and laid back when he isn't on the mound, he is a great competitor between the lines who brings a reliable effort each day and is a great teammate. His passion for the game has grown steadily since I first met him 5 years ago and I can see that he appreciates his experiences on the diamond as big parts of his personal growth. He is someone I would take on my team every year due to his personality and his skill set and I think an overseas opportunity for him would be outstanding.
