Personal

Hit for average, hit for power, leader in the clubhouse, solid defender, heads up base runner, can help coach younger players bc I have decent experience

I play solid 3B and 1B at AAA level. Have played 2B as well, and some LF. Not sure of competition but played SS in college as well

Bring energy, be a leader, keep game fun while caring about winning.

 

Career highlights

Big 12 co-scholar athlete of the year in college. Played in Omaha at TCU. Multiple pro all star games. Hit .299 with 19 HR’s in AAA. Played in NPB for Seibu Lions.

 

Coaching

Energy, experience, looseness, enjoyment of watching guys get better, letting guys figure out their adjustments rather than me just tell them what my adjustments were as a player.

I have worked with a lot of younger players. Typically run camps and lessons during every offseason. Focus on offense and infield defense. I work with high school kids in the off seasons as well. 

 

Overseas Goals

My wife and I love Europe. Want to be around the game of baseball in a beautiful culture and environment, while my kids can watch me in a uniform and I get to play hero for them a little longer. I have an offer to play in Mexico for good $, but for my family I would rather us play in Europe and live a healthier lifestyle together.

I’m in great shape. Have been preparing to go to big league camp spring training all offseason. My swing is truly the best it has ever been.
