Personal

Kyle is very athletic and can play first base and shortstop, as well as pitch, so he offers some versatility to a club.  He has been a pitcher – both a starter and reliever – in college, but played multiple positions and hit in the number-three spot during his high-school career.

As a pitcher, features a fast ball, change-up and curve, and he has recently been working on adding a sinker and sweeper to his repertoire.  He has the ability to throw strikes consistently and get batters out.

Kyle is a very positive, supportive teammate who ascribes to team goals ahead of individual ones.  He says, “I’m the type who leads by example and will do anything I can to help the team succeed.  Being part of a team is the best part of sports, and I love to make connections with those around me.”

He also has some youth coaching experience, and he would be interested in helping a team’s coaching staff.
