Personal

High IQ, understands the game well. Can pick up pitchers’ tendencies and patterns.

Fielding: soft and sure-handed, average arm, 3/4 slot, high 70’s across the diamond. Great hands and footwork around 2nd base for double plays.

Hitting: left-handed hitter. Excellent bat-to-ball skills, understands the strike zone, gap to gap hitter. Finds barrel consistently. Depending on the situation depends on the type of AB –  need to get on base, sac fly, need to hit/run, move a guy from 2nd to third (college avg is low because I was used a ton in hit/runs, ground ball to 2nd to move the runner to 3rd). Avg/slugging % in summer ball is a lot higher when allowed to swing freely.

Speed: Low 7’s, 60 yard dash.

Can transition to 3rd base with relative ease as I am used to playing infield and grew up playing 3rd base before transitioning to short and 2nd in college. Can play left field and make the routine plays.

Have been voted Team Captain for 2 years in college, 2 years in high school and many years in summer ball. Leader by example, 100% effort when on the field, no plays off, always working on skills. Not the most vocal but remains up beat and positive, always encouraging, keeps things light. Able to connect with a wide range of people regardless of the background.

 

Career highlights

Recruited to join the Greek National Team, was in the process of getting my Greek citizenship but then Covid hit so the process was canceled by the embassy due to low priority.

College:

  • Captain of the varsity baseball team my junior and senior year.
  • League All-Star Senior season.
  • 2nd in the league in stolen bases in sophomore season.
  • Highest fielding % by 2nd basemen in Sophomore and Senior seasons.
  • Multiple time player of the game.
  • Team won 2 OCAA’ silver and 1 bronze medals over 4 years.

 

Captain of East York Baseball AAA summers teams from age 15 – 20, never hit lower than .350.

 

Overseas Goals

I want one last season of competitive baseball before life gets in the way. I’m in good shape and really miss the competition (especially after not having a season). Was hired as a physical education and business teacher so won’t have the opportunity to do this once I get a permanent position.

Our 2021 season was cancelled because of Covid, played two tournaments in August, played slowpitch weekly instead. Continuing to go to the gym 3x a week and play hockey once a week. Plan to start hitting and the cage and taking ground balls in January 2022.
