Used in every scenario on mound, Starting, long, middle relief, also as setup and closer.

Played first base in high school, everyday first baseman for summer ball, experience hitting summer college level. Solid glove fielding.

I am a leader in the dugout and on the mound, give advice to others, keep the guys loose by cracking jokes, but keeping it serious. Good attitude at all times supporting teammates. Show up early and stay late helping other guys get more work by hitting fungos, sharing tips, and working grips.
