Personal

Broke the Western Canadian Baseball League (collegiate summer league) home run record last summer, hitting 20 homeruns in 34 games. Last two years of college I had over 47 extra base hits including 20 homeruns. In my first year playing overseas I lead the Austrian baseball first league in doubles and RBI’s and was second in homeruns, while having a 965 fielding percentage.

Abilities summary: I am a power hitter with the ability to drive in runs and hit for average, while getting on base. I pop around or below 2.0 with a strong defensive ability behind the plate or at third base. I have many years of coaching experience both in the private and team field. Broke the Western Canadian Baseball leagues home run record in 24 games with 19 homeruns. Currently finishing my first year overseas with the Dornbirn Indians in Austria. Lead the league in doubles and RBI’s and was second with 6 homeruns, while hitting 370.

Overseas goals: Extend my career a little longer before hanging them up, Experience new cultures and meet new people, Use my knowledge and experience to help grow the game globally, Stay active during the offseason in a winter league, Gain coaching experience
