Henry Lovekamp is the player that every coach wants on their team. He is positive and enthusiastic, the heart and soul of every team he has played on. As a fielder Henry is phenomenal. He can be counted on to get the job done and I would consider him the defensive cornerstone of every team he has played for. As a hitter Henry is consistent and can be relied on to make a play. One of the biggest assets that Henry brings to the team is he is coachable, Henry is always striving to improve. You won't find a more dedicated athlete than Henry Lovekamp, he is truly a great baseball player and exceptional human.
