I have played at a very competitive level of baseball since I was a kid. In every league I have played in I have been successful in getting people out on a consistent basis. From ages 12-18 I traveled around the United States playing in tournaments against teams consisting of current professional and collegiate players. For most of those years I would hit and would get to pitch in any big game we had. I have also had a very successful college career working out of the bullpen as my teams closer. My sophomore year I broke a record for opponents batting average in a season holding hitters to a .198 that year. I have been recognized as an all-conference pitcher twice and am expecting a first team award at the end of the season. I was also an honorable mention pre-season all american by @D3BaseballPod. I can throw any pitch I have where I want and enjoy pitching in big games.
Abilities summary: I use four pitches Fastball, Slider Curve, Change-up. Fastball tops out at 83

As I pitcher, he is upper 70’s, maybe 81 on a good day. He does throw 4 pitches for a strike at any time. FB, SL, Change, and Curveball. He does love baseball is a good teammate. I always thought he could work harder than he did, but his best trait is his competitiveness.
Dante is a first class individual and pitcher. His energy is positive and will rub off on his teammates. On the mound, Dante is an absolute competitor. He has succeeded in numerous big games and pressure situations, and is always prepared for any challenge at hand. He can be used to start games or to come out of the bullpen. His quality four pitch mix and quick tempo on the mound can baffle hitters. Off the field, Dante will be a productive and positive member of any community that he is in. Dante has also had the chance to play for Head Coaches at the club and college level with a tremendous amount of knowledge for the game, so Dante would be an ideal candidate to help promote baseball at the youth level, or contribute to his team. He is definitely a young man worth giving an opportunity!
