Catching – Strong defensive catcher, pop time under 2.0. Communicate very well.
Hitting – fast hitter, I like to steal bases and typically hit for avg. Good eye at the plate as well, Walk a lot.
Pitching – strong arm, 86-88mph.
Outfield is my main secondary position as I can use my speed and strong arm. But also have the ability to get on the mound when needed and challenge hitters with my fastball.
I have always been a leader on the teams that I have played on, mainly leading by example but when it comes to game time, not shy to use my voice and be a local leader. I have been well liked by my teammates and still keep in touch with some teammates form over 7 years ago.
After my final season of college baseball, getting invited back to be a coach as well and strength and conditioning coach for the college I played at is one of my favourite accomplishments. Showed me that the coaches saw the value in what I bring.
I bring a lot of relatability to, I have worked with so many different coaches so I have heard so many different ways to explain something, which I think has made me learn my own way of communicating. I am not afraid to be wrong when coaching so I love talking things through with kids to make sure we get it right.
I played my last season in Austria and seeing the enjoyment that people have all over the world playing baseball is one of the best memories I have ever made.
When I am not in season playing I am also a catching and hitting instructor.
