Jordan is the man. Passionate, respected - in his short time working with us he has built an unbelievable rapport with the athletes, coaches, and parents. He has a work ethic and passion for learning that I have yet to see from anyone his age. I can't say enough good things about him as both a player and a coach. He'll be successful in any avenue he pursues; and if he stays in baseball, he'll do great things for the sport and for any athlete he builds a relationship with. In the baseball world - he's a "dude" on and off the field. In terms of baseball - he has displayed advanced understanding of the swing. He's an above average athlete who has legit pop from the right side. His bat will play. Defensively, has good hands and footwork at 3B; but he can play multiple positions well.
Without any hesitation would I recommend Jordan for this position. Jordan is a extremely dedicated player and knows the game in and out. He was an absolute pleasure to be around everyday and always kept a smile. He speaks the game Well And has great passion.
