NTIS Experience

I'm excited about playing in the NTIS because ...
There are a lot of colleges here, so I'm using this as an opportunity to send out emails and tell coaches that I'm coming here (to play). It's a big tournament, so they like to hear about it. 

People would describe my region's playing style as ...
More of hitting the long ball. But for me being a smaller guy compared to most of the guys, I just go for line drives and play more to my body type than my region's style of play. 

To be selected for the 2015 USA Baseball National Team Trials, it would mean ...
A lot. To be selected for the Trials would be a big honor obviously. A lot of really good guys come out of there, so I'm going to try my best. 
Currently in Life

When I'm not playing baseball ...
Lately, it has been studying for the SATs. Being a senior in high school, it's my biggest focus right now. Keeping my grades up and studying for the SATs are my priorities.

Each day my motivation is ...  
To get up and get better, stay ahead of the competition. You can't take a day off. All my coaches tell me that if I take a day off, someone else is getting better than me. I just have to go out there and work every single day.

I owe a special thank you to ... 
My parents. They come to every single tournament, every single game. My dad takes a ton of time off work to even come to my practices. I really owe a special thanks to them. 

My Lifestyle

The technology I couldn't live without ...
It would probably be my cell phone. I have to always have it on me to keep in touch with parents, family and friends.

People would be surprised to know ...
That I just live for baseball. In school, people don't really know how intense I am about baseball. It's basically my life.

When I grow up, I want to be ...
A baseball player. If I couldn't make it in baseball, I want to major in criminal justice, so the options are still open.
