Power hitter but hit for average as well, speed 6.9/ 60, 4.8/ 40. infield velo 85, exit velo off T 101, has been recorded at 118 live. haven’t pitched since HS but was All State HS pitcher, FB 85 but off speed was really my thing.
Started this year at 3rd finished at 1st, played SS all thru High School including All American teams. I started pitching at 7 and pitched all thru HS, Was all-state tournament pitcher mt senior year of HS. I attended many high profile pitching camps to learn more, but stopped pitching in college because I didn’t have a lot of velocity.
I am a team leader and great team mate. not super vocal I lead by example. I have always offered pointers in dug out and cages, I feel like my best quality is my baseball IQ. i play with a lot of energy but keep it loose in dugout, always the 1st guy there and last to leave and work hard off field hitting and in the gym on my own.
2 yr All District HS, 2 years All State HS, 2018 and 2020 ABCA All American. 2020 NJCAA All Star, 2021 NJCAA National Player of the Year. Lead nation with HR(21), RBI(70), total bases 174. 2021 NJCAA World Series MVP , 2023 1st Team All Conference finished 2023 with 6 HR, BA 365, have always been 3 or 4 hole.
Great baseball IQ and ability to help others be better, calm under pressure and able to demonstrate fielding, hitting and pitching.
I love the game and want to keep playing, would love to be in MLB at some point , but feel like this would be a great opportunity to travel and do something a little different, the experience of playing overseas has always appealed to me. I want to be an Impact player learn more and maybe teach others a little
Just finished my last college season this May, 2023.
