- I have experience as a baseball coach at high-level competition (Collegiate and higher). In fact, I just finished my entire year of coaching collegiate baseball and just finished off the summer with my collegiate summer team winning the league championship! I have the knowledge of how to run camps for prospects and younger kids to help publicize baseball especially internationally!
- I also pitched in college baseball and a little in professional baseball. I threw between 88 MPH to 92 MPH with my fastball and I had a slider, curveball, changeup, and splitter. I can help pitch for a team even if I am a position player as I am an experienced two-way player!
- In 2016, I played in Men’s Baseball League as there was trouble with my professional baseball contract as I wasn’t able to get on any professional baseball team. However, I did go around to work out for MLB teams and each time, I made the final cut but there were no spots on any affiliated teams when I finished the workouts for the teams.
- In 2017, I had to take my time off to finish my Master’s Degree in Sports Industry Management at Georgetown University and then decided to pursue coaching collegiate baseball. I still got to play in the Men’s Baseball League as well.
- Was invited to spring training workout for the St. Louis Cardinals as a third baseman and right fielder. Rated to have an exceptional arm.
- While playing in a stimulated game against a couple of pitchers who pitched in MLB, I got a couple of hits off them including a double.
- Went 2-2 off a triple A pitcher while playing in United Baseball League.
- Was named to two-time All-American first team, two-time all-conference, and all-south region team when I was in college.
- When I played against Amarillo Sox (American Association) while I was with Las Vegas Train Robbers, I went 2-4 with 2 rbis while being the only one on the team with a multi-hit and multi-rbi game.
- Was ranked in America in multiple offensive categories (Batting Average, Doubles, RBIs, HBP, and toughest to strike out) when I was in college.
- Played for a little while in the Australian Baseball League (Auckland Tuataras). Played Third Base and Second Base.
- Was named to BBOJ Top 25 Batters (Honorable Mention) 2018-2019
