Favorite Baseball Memory: #1. Went to the Dominican Republic to play a tournament and ended up playing with a Dominican team. I go to know them, practice with them, learn their customs, eat at the coach’s house and learned about the Dominican baseball program. I also got to see MLB recruiting complexes and the Niche Program (where 90% of the Dominican players in the MLB come from). It was an all around, fun, great, eye-opening baseball experience.

#2. I came in as pitcher in the sixth inning (final inning) with bases loaded and three balls on the batter and threw three straight strikes to strike him out and end the game with a tie. (Personally, it would have been cooler if it was for a WIN, but it was still it was a very great moment in my baseball career.)

Baseball Rituals: I wake up and have breakfast and get ready while watching MLB network. Go to at least on MLB game a year and watch the World Series every year.
