I am an extremely hard worker whether that is on or off the field. Throughout every baseball every team I have played on, I was always looked at as a leader and mentor for players. In being that type of player I am always the first person to practice whether its on the field or in the weight room and the last player to leave. I am a 2 Time Captain in my college career, along as an All Conference player in my Junior Year. Playing at both the Highest Level in competition in the JUCO and NAIA Conferences I have learned how to make adjustments on the fly, how to make myself a better ballplayer, and most importantly how to prepare myself daily for the grind.

As a team first type of player, I will do whatever it takes to help the team win. That being as in playing any position on the field and taking on any role that is needed. My coaches always viewed me as a person who can relay a message across to someone/team when they can’t achieve the goal and as a person who has respect of others.

Words connected to me as a player would be determination, perseverance, commitment, and character. These words have been said by coaches I played for and against, teammates, umpires, and even parents/fans who attended our games. When it comes to me as a player, you’re getting more than a great baseball player who will give it their all each and everyday but you’re going to get a person who respects the game,their team they are playing for, their fans, and most importantly the community. I would be interesting in helping the youth in the community whether it would be coaching, camps, or volunteer work.

Greg Bottari

Hitting Coach

I have had the pleasure of being Emerson Gross’s hitting instructor for the past four years. I have been beyond impressed with his overall work ethic and ability to persevere through adversities. He is a powerful young man who is an extremely tough out for any pitcher and has a line drive approach at the plate. Emerson’s ability to use all fields is a tremendous plus, as pitchers have difficulty figuring out any weaknesses with his hitting approach. If he does not drafted in the 2018 MLB draft, any independent league would be fortunate to have him as a player. A true born leader, Emerson’s presence in any dugout is immediately noticed and admired. An absolute pleasure to coach, Emerson Gross would never disappoint any coach who believes in his abilities.

College Hitting Coach

My name is Cliff Allred and I’m the hitting coach and recruiting coordinator here at St Andrews University. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Emerson Gross for 2 years. The kind of player you are getting with Emerson is a kid that will battle and is not afraid to be in the situation that can make or break the game. The tools set he has is honestly the thing that stands out is the ability to hit. He understands the things that make him successful. The kind of teammate Emerson is, he is the type that will lead by example and is not afraid to hold a players only meeting as well as speak up when it’s called for. His teammates enjoyed him both on and off the field. He’s a great kid and a good baseball player.
