White Men Can't Jump, For the Love of the Game
First memory of baseball:
Hitting my first homerun in Cooperstown and giving the ball to my grandpa.
My greatest baseball memory:
Making the Area Codes game and getting a chance to play in front of every scout imaginable.
Why I came to Washington:
I trust the coaches and I love how they play with determination to get the job done and most of all being a team player. This school fits me perfect and I can't wait for these years to come.
