    Kyle is a great competitor, and can play any position on the infield. Versatile player, and can also pitch if needed. Best trait is that he’s a great teammate and plays the game hard.

    Great young man! Watched him grow as a player from playing Church ball with my nephew in Indiana to now. Plays hard and does what the team needs to win!
