As for batting, I can be put anywhere in the lineup and get the job done. I mostly have been a leadoff batter, this is because I am a player who finds ways to get on base. I am more of a hit for contact player, but I still have power in my swing. On the bases I move quick and steal bases, I am a player who has good reads and makes pitchers think. In the field I am a strong outfielder who can track baseballs very good, I have a good arm from the outfield as well. I am a smart player out there and make good plays. I have infield experience as well, I can be put just about anywhere.
Overall I see myself as a baseball player who has respect for the game. I get along with teammates and coaches, I am someone you do not have to worry about. I play hard and always have a good attitude on and off the field. I believe I can be a good attribute to any organization.
Also, I have a brother who has an account on here. The reason I mention him is because we play very good together and are the same player. Us playing together would be very good for any team.

I am very glad to have coached Johnny. He was a pleasure to have and was a hard worker. One of those that just can’t get enough baseball, as his desire to continue to play exemplifies that. He’s not afraid of putting in the time and effort required to get better. Off the field, I never had any issues and didn’t ever worry about him. Not a guy that will find himself in trouble. On the field Johnny runs well and played an excellent centerfield for us. He would have probably been one of our better infielders too, but he is better in the outfield and would be the best fit for someone else in right or centerfield. Can make all of the throws from the outfield and is smart with the baseball. I only coached Johnny for two years, and from what I saw offensively, he had good power to all fields, but could occasionally get pull-happy and needed to work on pitch selection. One thing specifically we worked on his senior year was being more aggressive at the plate, early in the count, because he had a tendency to see too many good pitches and put himself into a lot of 2 strike at bats. He’s got good bat speed, and I’ve seen him compete against some top-notch pitching, never with the feeling he was overpowered or over matched. Wherever Johnny ends up, he is going to be focused on playing baseball and competing at the highest level he can. He would be a great addition to any team. Please let me know if I can help further,
I can totally vouch for this kids attitude, make up, and character. He is a solid all around player that is just a tad short in his all around skills to be a MLB organizational sign. He was a very solid D-2 player. He plays hard and is a guy that will leave it all on the field and will be a good team mate and a guy that a manager will like. He is driven and hungry. Has some strength and instincts. I would classify him, at this stage as a guy that could be a solid lower level Indy player. Or a rookie OF that could come of the bench the higher levels of Indy ball and hold his own in all aspects of the game. A coach or manager would love having him. He plays with an edge and will get his uniform dirty.
