Eddie came to France and made big impact for our team. He played very good short stop and smart hitter with good approach. He was a team leader and helped coach the youth teams. Really brought the team together.

I first played against Eddie in France back in 2016. He was a very tough out and a great all-around player. I got to know him better over the past few years and have come to find that he is not only a great athlete, who can contribute on the field and at the plate, but he's also a great person off the field. Eddie is passionate about this game and it shows through the way he plays. He is a team player who is always positive and looking to help out his teammates. I believe that Eddie would be a great addition to any team overseas.

John Savage

Head Coach, UCLA

Ed is a guy you want on your club. He brings his passion to the field every day and has a deep knowledge of the game. Can really get in base. Was our lead off hitter but can also hit for extra bases.
