Positions (alt): OF, CF
College: Lindenwood University
My poptime ranges from 1.8 to 1.9, I’m a very solid guy overall and at the plate I’m disciplined as well as a contact hitter.
In college I was able to help in filling a spot for the outfield for an injured player due to my speed. I had never done it until that point but like always I do, I gave my 100%. I have an above average arm and very good speed, all needed to play the outfield.
I’m a very vocal person, as a catcher should be. All in the sense of making the guys around me better. I’m the one that goes and talks to others when they feel they aren’t doing as good or are being taken for granted because I’ve been in that position before. However, in the dugout while I am paying attention to the game I’m never against guys having fun and having a laugh.
Ever since I was in high school I’ve excelled, as far as being taken as a reinforcement to the be the starting catcher. I have multiple state and national championships. In college, I was able to compete at the highest level for a starting job with players who were 22-23 at the time while I was an 18 year old.
I’m choosing to play overseas because I want a fresh start, as well as an opportunity to win and excell and be taken into account. I truly believe that this is something I owe myself and will make the best out of it.
I’m in the weight room and the baseball field everyday except for Sundays. And during the week I do yoga to help myself loosen up and prevent injury.
