Personal

Consistently bats leadoff, 2nd, or 3rd. Base stealer, 6.5 second 60-yard dash. Home to first 3.9 sec. 93 MPH outfield velocity. Homerun power to all fields. Very knowledgeable of the game. Utility defender.

Elite defender in the outfield. Very comfortable playing short, second, and third.

I am the first person at the field and the last to leave every day. I always lead by example and am vocal when necessary. I enjoy sharing my baseball knowledge and hearing new perspectives on the game that will help me grow mine. I maintain a serious and loose atmosphere. I love playing the game and love winning.

 

Career highlights 

Currently batting leadoff and hitting .392 (2nd in the league) with the London Majors of the IBL summer league in Ontario, Canada. 9 doubles, 4 triples, 7 home runs, 32 RBI, 8 SB.
