Personal

I am a player that has been a part of multiple successful programs, that have opened many doors to experience high level competition. Through these experiences I have became a sure handed infielder who brings a very upbeat attitude. I’m a team first player that can play multiple positions on the infield and comfortable hitting anywhere in the order.

I have coached and trained infielders for a youth organization for a couple years now. Being able to give my experiences and knowledge back to young baseball players is something that I am very passionate about. A quote from my former coach Jordan Bischel (Head Coach at Central Michigan), “The development of one’s baseball tools is for the short term, but the development of one’s character will last forever.”

 

Overseas goals:

  • Extend my career a little longer before hanging them up
  • Use overseas as a stepping stone into professional ball in the U.S.
  • Experience new cultures and meet new people
  • Use my knowledge and experience to help grow the game globally
  • Stay active during the offseason in a winter league

Testimonials

Jake Sabol

Northwood University, Manager

Colin is a super high character individual. He is a team first player, a humble individual, and a quality young man. He is always willing to do whatever the team needs of him in order to have success, and win. As a coach, he was always excited about coming to practice, always the first one to say hello, and always had a strong work ethic. I cannot recommend him enough. As a player, Colin is reliable and accountable. He is a leader on the infield, and can play all 4 infield positions. Primarily a MIF, he can make all the routine plays, and is a very quiet defender. Offensively, Colin flashed power in his 2 years at NU, hitting 13 or so HRs and driving in plenty of runs. Usually hit anywhere from 2-4 in our order. He puts together competitive ABs and had a strong presence in our daily lineup.
