Personal

I played two years of junior college ball in one of the best conferences in the nation, and then played two years of division 1 baseball. I was all-conference all four years and was one of the top hitters for all of the teams I played on. I am also very good defensively using my speed for a lot of range and being baseball smart. I grew up playing shortstop and then played mostly center field in college, but I can play every position on the field. On offense I use my speed well stealing bases and bunting when there is an opportunity to get on base. I am a gap to gap hitter that is good at getting extra bases and I have some good power as well. I do have a lot of opposite field power, five out of the six home runs I hit senior year were right-center to the right field pole. I am very committed and work my hardest day in and day out taking pride in how competitive and hardworking I can be. I can also come in relieve pitching for 1-2 innings.

Abilities summary: I am an athletic baseball player that can play almost any position, I am fast player that can steal bases, and I am a Gap to Gap hitter with some power including good opposite field power. I have quick hands and feet so I can get rid of the ball quickly and have a lot of range.
