I have grown up in professional baseball all of my life. My dad has been working in professional baseball since before I was born and played in the MILB and MLB from 1980-1989. He is currently the Director of Player Development for the Miami Marlins. I feel that I have had an advantage over a lot of baseball players because I grew up in and around the baseball field, players, coaches, and front office. I was fortunate enough to gain all aspects of professional baseball through these opportunities and in return, it helped mold me into the player I am today.
I was a 4 year varsity baseball player in high school receiving All-Conference, Division, and State recognition. From there, I started my collegiate baseball career at College of Southern Nevada (most famous for Bryce Harper). I started as a freshmen at first-base. I received an All-Conference honorable mention for my defensive and offensive work at first. The following year I transferred to Colorado Christian to start and play at SS. I led the team with a .365 batting avg. 4HRs, and 18 doubles. Sadly, I had a season ending injury in 2016 and was unable to be on the field. After recovering fully, I attended Saint Leo University. While at St. Leo, I was the starting second baseman for two years hitting .270 with 7 Hrs and making 4 errors my junior year. My senior year I hit .312 with 12 doubles, 6 triples, 8 HRs, 42 RBI, and 45 runs scored. After this season, I was fortunate enough to be drafted by the Seattle Mariners and played 60 games between low and High-A. The following year I continued to play professional baseball with the Miami Marlins in Low-A, finishing in High-A with a .333 batting avg.
Lastly, I have a strong understanding of the game and how to help it grow in other players and places. While playing in college and pro baseball, I was approached by coaches and players for help defensively and offensively. I see myself as a very capable coach and love to see the game grow in others and be a reason as to why it does. I am not ready to hang it up yet and still want to play, but still would use all my ability and knowledge to help other players, coaches, or communities on how to grow their game or the game for younger, future ball players.
