Matt Kavanaugh

Asst. Coach, Academy of Art University

I think overseas would be perfect for Taj. He is a great kid/teammate on and off the field. He has game changing speed and uses it often. Offensively he is continuing to grow and each year has improved significantly. I see him as a late bloomer and his best years are still ahead. Defensively he covers every inch of the OF and has a plus arm. For a undersized player he has exceptional tools. I know a lot of players and have played and managed many who have played overseas and This is a perfect place for Taj to start his baseball career after college.

John Marsh

Owner, San Diego Mavericks

Taj played on the San Diego Mavericks three seasons, he played center field for use all three seasons,as the lead off hitter he is very fast, stole a lot of bases, has a good bat, (20 SB, 415 avg). Has a strong accurate arm, he was the starting center fielder for the All star team (Western Baseball Association). Taj would be an great addition to any team he plays on. He is a leader on and off the field.

Lloyd E. Dawson

Head Coach, San Diego Mavericks

Taj plays Collegiate summer ball for our team the San Diego Mavericks in which we play in a high-level western baseball conference. Taj was always the top CF on the field, regardless of who we played. He was the staring CF in the all star game. Taj has unbelievable speed to the baseball and is extremely fast with the great accurate arm. On offense he was all lead off hitter 20 SB, .415 avg, for the past three seasons he has been our CF. He is a gap to gap hitter with occasional power. He’s the only player that has the green light to steal whenever he feels, Very smart baseball player , very coachable is a great kid.
