Contact hitter, speed with ability to catch balls in gaps and steal 30+ bases
I’m a true centerfielder with great speed, arm is my weakness defensively. I’m a contact hitter who likes to bunt, steal to put pressure on defense.
I’m a respectful and positive person. Wether I’m 0-15 or 15-15 at the plate I’m the same person. Great work ethic and loves to win. I want to win championships.
Getting drafted by Miami Marlins, 2018 Derek Jeter’s first draft class as owner. Batting average of .326 before getting cut during Covid-19, NY Penn League All-Star 2018
I bring a positive energetic attitude and refined mental skills. Baseball is 70% mental and 30% physical. The attitude is everything! When things aren’t going your way, “How are you going to handle it?”
Along with baseball knowledge. But if a player doesn’t have a good attitude and mindset it does no good to have the knowledge.
The minor league system was fun but unfair and since getting released with an exceptional resume it turned my attention to overseas. I would love to go overseas to fulfill my second dream and to win championships for the years to come. I heard most overseas leagues/ teams take care of their players so that means a lot.
I’m a baseball/softball director at a summer camp so I’m still around and in love with the game. Before this camp I attended spring training with the Joliet Slammers.
