I have been playing and coaching baseball for as long as I can remember, from playing in my backyard with the neighborhood to playing at the college level. I’ve been fortunate to travel to different parts of the United States because of baseball, and hope it can take me across the world. With all my experiences I have grown comfortable to play all positions during any situation of a game. I was fortunate to be a 2-time captain at MSUM and have learned what it takes to be a good leader on and off the field, during practices and just encouraging the younger players on the team. With my ability, knowledge of the game with the willingness to be a leader and honorable teammate I will do whatever it takes to help the team out.
2019 was my first season overseas, playing in the second division of Germany. I played every position on the field except for catcher and I coached the woman’s softball team to a league championship. I also assisted with the entire youth program.
This winter I signed on with my former college (MSUM) as an assistant coach.
Abilities summary: I throw a 4 seam, 2 seam, curve-ball, slider, knuckle-ball, change-up. Throw in the low 80s.
Contact hitter, hit to all parts of the field. I go with the pitch, I don’t try to force the ball to one side or the other.

Mason would be a wonderful asset to your organization. He has an incredible passion and desire for the game of baseball. I have played against Mason for two years of college ball, and also played with Mason for another two years of ball at Minnesota State University Moorhead. In terms of ethics, he is a very hard worker, he shows up early every day and often times is wanting to stay late. As I am the current president of the MSUM baseball organization, when there are tasks at hand, I have been well aware that Mason is one of the first who steps up to help. On the field, Mason is a very adequate player. He works hard and goes all out when every opportunity occurs. Every player has a job for every pitch, and Mason fully embraces that. Being a left-handed bat, Mason has a good ability to go the other way with the ball. In my time playing around him, he hits a lot to the left center gap, or down the left field line. In the time I have known Mason as a player, he has matured on the field a lot. As essentially every player deals with bad at-bats, fielding errors, or mental mistakes, sometimes poor behavior is shown after hand. I've never witnessed Mason perform any over-the-line action when it comes to the preceding situations, although he has become a lot more level headed and a team player about the mistakes when they are made. Instead of having a bad attitude and letting a situation bring him down, he looks at issues with a more positive attitude and never fails to go out and make the next play, or get a clutch hit his next at bat. Mason is also a big team player. He shows that he wants the best for the team and it shows in his overall ethic and performance. Mason is not afraid to offer advice and help young and new players out. He has taken time to help several of the new players within our program in their fielding and hitting mechanics, along with the mental aspect of the game as well. Overall, Mason is a phenomenal teammate, a leader, and a great asset to an organization. If there is anything else you'd like to know or if you have any questions, feel free to get back to me.
