Jake Haney

Head Coach, Irvine Tides

Trent is first and foremost a wonderful young man. He is coachable, hardworking, and respectful to his coaches and teammates. Trent's best tool is his bat. He has an uncanny knack for grinding out at bats and finding the barrel. He had a very productive summer last summer in the Pacific Coast Collegiate League. Trent is not the player that is going to wow you just seeing him once, but the more you see him the more you realize what a good player he is.

Jonas Schwering

Head Coach, Dortmund Wanderers

Trent is a really good line drive hitter with gap to gap power. I rarely saw a guy with his ability to stay inside the baseball. Most of the time he hit leadoff for us, because of his ability to get on base consistently - without striking out a lot. Defensive wise we used him as a corner outfielder because of his solid arm. He can play right field as well as leftfield. He also played some innings at first base. If you need a guy to pitch some innings to give other guys some rest, Trent will do the job. Trent is a calm guy who will immediately fit in your team. Even though i only saw Trent play in the second divison of Germany, I'm pretty sure he can be easily a 300+ hitter in the top division.

Jonathan Beck

Beveren Lions

Trent played in our team as a Pitcher/1st baseman. Immediately after his arrival it was clear he is very social and I think he would fit easily in any kind of team. During our season Trent excelled in good hitting and stable pitching. He is a player who really enjoys to play baseball and who would never give up till the end of the game. During the games Trent was always very respectful towards the opponent and the umpire. During his stay he also coached the younger teams during practises in the week and camps during the holidays. He is good with younger players and he likes to share his knowledge with them. To summarize Trent is a definitely an asset to your club if you are looking for a social player with a very good bat and a heart for baseball.
