Lead by example type guy who can be vocal when necessary. I like to keep the dugout loose and help out teammates whenever possible. I strive to be the guy people come to with any questions they have.
I have a lot of experience at my secondary positions. Was primarily a 2B/3B all through high school and didn’t primarily switch to SS until college. Am very comfortable playing all positions and helping out the team in whatever way necessary.
I am looking for a unique experience that allows me to see new places, meet new people, all while being able to continue my baseball career at the pro level. I also would like to continue to spread the game of baseball to new parts of the world and get more kids globally involved in the sport.

Nick checks all of the boxes for what you're looking for. He always looking for ways to get better, is just as good of a person as he is player. He has the ability to make any play from SS, can hit with the best of them! I hope he finds a home, he'll be an asset to any team that picks him up.
