As far as baseball goes, it is something that I love to do. As a player I plan on bringing a consistent effort to the field in terms of my daily routines, attitude, and things I can control. As a player I think I could be a good fit for most teams due to my versatility. Being able to play both infield and outfield allows me to be in the lineup regardless of where it is. Offensively I have the ability to drive the ball with authority to all fields. This spring, I plan on showcasing this ability and reflecting all of the changes I have made over the years to improve my game. As a side note, although speed is not necessarily my game, I do have the ability to steal some bases. My first step and explosive power is something that helps me get going quickly in a straight line.
Abilities summary: Corner Guy that hits for some power. Exit Velo has peaked at 106.4 this offseason off the pitching machine
I am proud to recommend Peter to play for any team overseas. He has the talent, work ethic, and character to succeed in professional baseball. Peter was a three year starter at Bentley University, where he played in the heralded Northeast-10 conference. Peter has an advantage in that this conference was played with wood bats, so he has experience of playing full college seasons with wood, whereas other players will have to adjust. After an injury cut short his senior year, Peter made great swing modifications and will look to transfer those modifications to games for Lander University, a powerhouse division 2 program for his graduate year. Peter's biggest strength is his bat. He has exceptional power and can hit the ball to all fields. He displays advanced feel at the plate is able to draw walks and get on base. He has spent a lot of time of developing hitting mechanics to match the best hitters in the world, and there are not too many swings in pro ball that I would take over Peter's. He is a 6.8 runner who can throw in the upper 80's across the diamond. He plays a very good 3B/2B/1B as well as a serviceable corner outfielder. This is a guy who you can move around and play multiple positions without losing any value defensively. Peter is a very strong player who puts up impressive numbers in the weight room, yet has spent much his training working on mobility and flexibility. He is a very loose and athletic mover to go along with his strength. Peter is one of the hardest workers I have ever met. He puts an exceptional amount of time into the details of peak performance such as vision, nutrition, and the mental game. I have first hand seen how his work ethic can push other players to work harder and bring their best effort. He is a great teammate who would add value to your club on and off the field. Peter has spent much of his time training at renown facilities and has learned under some great coaches. While training at Baseball PDS, a training facility that develops numerous MLB and MiLB players, Peter served as a mentor to the younger clients and was able to help them develop their abilities at a much faster rate. He has extensive knowledge of hitting mechanics, timing, strength and conditioning, defense, vision, and the mental game. He would be a valuable asset to any teams youth program as a coach while he is playing.
