Personal

Owen is a gap-to-gap hitter with power.  His exit velocity ranges from the high 90s (mph) to the low-100s.  He is a good defender at both first base and the corner outfield positions, so he adds flexibility to a roster.  He can also fill in at third base, if necessary.

He is a vocal leader who tries to keep the team loose.  He is the type who continually works to find ways to improve his game.  He grew up around the game, since both his father and uncle are former major-league players.

He continues to work out and train on a regular basis, having just completed his last season of college ball.

Additional testimonial:

Dmitri Young, Camarillo HS baseball coach – “Owen has a positive impact upon stepping on the field. He’s uplifting and encouraging to both his teammates and coaches. He has respect for the game and always sets great examples to others by hustling on and off the field, running balls out, playing with enthusiasm and playing the game like it’s supposed to be played. He has a high Baseball IQ because he grew up in the locker room and picked all the brains of myself and my brother’s teammates. He’s always wanting and willing to help, whether it’s pinch hitting or playing multiple positions, anything to get better and help the team win. A ‘MUST HAVE’ for your team.”
