I am a middle of the order type hitter who can hit for both power and average. I run a 6.8 60-yd dash and have an exit velocity of 105 mph. I play OF and 1B and feel comfortable at both positions.
I have played extensively in both the outfield and at first base and feel equally comfortable at these positions.
I would consider myself to be a lead by example type. I like to put in extra work outside of practice and am happy to help and work with teammates outside of practice by getting extra swings in the cage and extra reps on the field.
Serie A: Named Settimo’s Offensive MVP at the team’s end of the season award ceremony. I led Serie A in triples (after arriving late in the season) and was top 5 in OBP and SLG. I hit .429 with an .536 OBP and a .662 SLG.
European Championship 2023: lead the Greek National Team in HR and SLG as the every day RF.
Messiah University: 2x All-Conference, All-Region, Academic All-District, Academic All-Conference, All-Sportsmanship Team. In 2021, I tied the school’s HR record in a COVID-shortened season. That year, I hit .381 with a .441 OBP a .794 SLG, 1.235 OPS and 10 SB.
Tarboro River Bandits (summer bal): Named 2020 Offensive MVP of the Carolina Virginia Collegiate League. I hit .440 with a .533 OBP and a .640 SLG.
I would like to play overseas as a way to continue to play baseball at a high level while being able to explore new cultures.
