Personal

In high school I was a 3 year varsity started, first team all-star catcher and outfielder for my junior and senior seasons with a career batting average over .400. During my junior and senior year we won 2 league championships, a District Championship, and went to the Pennsylvania State Play-offs. In college I was a 4 year starter in the outfield and played in some of the best summer leagues in the country. While at Wilkes University I was named to the all-conference team 2 different times in 2015 and 2017. In 2015 I was awarded the sportsmanship award and led the conference in rbi’s. Throughout my 4 years I had a career batting average over .300.

During my first overseas season in 2018, I batted .379 with 9 doubles, 3 triples, 20 rbi’s, .606 slugging percentage, 25 walks, 7 hit-by-pitches, 9 k’s, 0 gdp’s, .570 obp, and 23-25 on stolen base attempts all as the lead-off hitter for the Metz Cometz, who play in the French Federation of Baseball and Softball. Defensively, I caught and played short stop for the team with a fielding percentage of .949 . I also played with the Attnang Athletics during Finkstonball, hitting a game winning grand slam against the Austrian National Team, and the International Stars who won the 2018 Prague Baseball Week Tournament.

I would love to help a team win a championship!!!

Abilities summary: From the outfield I sit from 87-91 mph, my pop time sits around a 1.95 sec. consistently, I hit for average while drawing a lot of walks, and hitting for some power. I am very aggressive on the bases.
