Commitment Corner

TELL US MORE...


Tell us about your commitment. Why did you decide on your school? 

Misericordia has a very good baseball program with good coaches. The atmosphere around the team represents my personality perfectly, and the guys liked me. The academics was a very good fit as well.


The offseason is upon us. Tell us a little about your off-season training:

I am giving my arm a break for 60 days, working out 5 times a week while also staying conditioned and focusing on a healthy diet.


Baseball is a game built on adversity & failure. Who is your biggest influence in the game that has helped you handle the ups and downs?

My dad has helped me day in and day out with the entire recruiting process and baseball as a whole. He made sure I always had the glove I wanted, and getting me to every tournament and practice. He’s been there for my highest of highs and lows during my baseball career.


Best player you ever shared the field with and why? 

Ian Ferrero, he has been my 2nd basemen or shortstop behind me for many years. Whenever a ball gets hit near him I know he’s going to make the play. He’s been my teammate since we were 9 years old and I’ve always loved sharing the field with him, along with off the field he’s always been one of my best friends.


How has your experience been with Prep Baseball Report?

Yes, the Prep Baseball Report platform has amazing exposure, and is the best way to record your metrics. Every experience I’ve had has been organized and well run.

 
Most memorable PBR event & why?

Being able to participate in the PBR Pennsylvania state games, being invited after throwing a perfect game for my school team was one of the coolest things.
