Personal

I am going into my second year of professional baseball in the United States. I played 2 years of college baseball at Div 1 Monroe college and 1-year at Post University. Batted over .300 in college. Pop time 1.8 seconds and experienced in catcher in veteran professional guys ranging from single-A to MLB arms. Looking for a place overseas to use as a stepping stone to play affiliated baseball 


Overseas goals:

  • Use overseas as a stepping stone into professional ball in the U.S.
  • Stay active during the offseason in a winter league
