1st base

Why do you like the game of softball?
Passion. Competitive nature. It’s a outlet. Get to travel the country playing a kids game.

Who is the best up and coming player in softball and why?

A 'C' team outta Missouri got me a chance with Buzini and I was lucky enough to be kept around.

What was the most surprising difference between Conference play and non-Conference play when you made the jump?
Pitchers and how they could get guys off balance throwing the ball under hand. Farron Miller I have faced a few times and by far he has flustered me more than ever imagined anyone could throwing a big yellow ball underhand.

I went through some serious mental issues the last few years after believing ptsd and other mental disorders are fake. A crutch for weak minded people. After a long battle that I lost I gave in to mental health and absolutely changed life and truly saved me.

    Great kid who has a passion for the game. REAL passion… I just HAD to go to the superstition question first… Anyone who knows my philosophy on lefty/lefties would understand. Great future ahead for this kid… You look at him & you just have to smile. Good luck this year kid!
