Personal

I’m a top-of-the-order hitter. I have always led off or hit second. I’m very well balanced at the plate, I would say I am more of a contact hitter, but I can still do damage at the plate. I do hit a lot of extra-base hits and get on base a lot. I have great plate discipline. In the summer league I just played in I was one of the league leaders in walks and OBP. I am a great defender. I can play all 3 outfield positions very good. I also have a great arm from the outfield. I get great reads on fly balls and it is very rare that I misjudge a ball in the outfield. I am an above-average runner. I run usually about a 6.9 60 yard dash. I am also a great base runner and can steal bases. I would say that my greatest trait as a baseball player is my baseball IQ. I have great feel for the game and do not make mental mistakes very often.

I’ve been playing all 3 outfield positions my entire baseball career. I am equally good at all 3.

I’m more of a lead-by-example guy. I always show up early or stay late to get extra work. I like to play loose and have fun. I keep the dugout loose and just try to go have fun and not worry about producing so much. It makes me as a player play better. If anyone ever needs help I am very willing to stay after and help them. I have a small coaching background, I was a player coach my senior year of high school and won the leadership award 2 years in a row. I have a lot of knowledge and good drills for hitting and the outfield. I also just started coaching a 12u travel team. I am the head assistant coach and mainly work with outfielders and hitters.

Career Highlights

Just finished a collegiate summer league and had a .442 OBP.

 

Overseas Goals

I’ve been playing college ball for 2 seasons and had a great time. I’ve just realized that my true passion is only for baseball and not for academics also. My true dream is to play and coach baseball and I would like to do that professionally around the world.

I just finished a summer league and am back home at the moment. I have a batting cage at my house so I hit every day and I workout 5 times a week.
