I feel like I’m just a very versatile, can do all roles on a pitching staff. I throw with decent velo(88-92)and have a really good curveball. I can keep hitters off balance, and I constantly want to learn and do everything for the team.
Well I became a starter in 2021 with a few spot starts. But I realized that if I can be used for long relief, why not train to go longer. So last off-season I pitched with zone 22 and started extending myself and found to be pretty effective against many former affiliate players.
I come with an open mind and open heart. I’m very loose and can bring the energy once I’m on that field. I also love helping out my teammates whether it’s with improving pitching mechanics issues, pitch grips, catching in the pen, I’ll even front toss for my hitters. I also won’t let my performance affect the energy and backing my guys. Just a huge team guy here.
I’ve been a part of 3 consecutive playoff runs for my team and winning a championship in 2021 for the Mavericks league playing under Daniel Robertson (former big leaguer and current bench coach in the Cleveland guardians org).
I really love sharing the knowledge I’ve gained from playing. I get more as a player when I actually coach. I have learned so much more from teaching. It’s also very gratifying see improvement from the kids and teammates I help.
Well I had my first experience last year in Germany. I truly loved my experience, and I love knowing that I’m helping grow the game elsewhere in the world is pretty awesome!
I’ve been playing in games all off-season, very fortunate for that in Southern California.
