I am an excellent hitter with good plate discipline, excellent pitch recognition, and gap-to-gap power. I am known for hitting lots of doubles and while I have home run power I don't hit a lot of home runs because I am more of a line drive hitter. High average, High OBP, Lots of Doubles.
If you pitch, what type of pitcher are you... Power? Ground ball, Fly ball, Knuckleball?
I throw a fastball in the low 80's with a Curve, Slider, and Changeup. I have good control and I also pitch from 3 different arm angles to keep hitters of balance.

Who is your favorite hitter and why?
Dustin Pedroia. I love that he takes such aggressive swings at the plate, but he doesn't extend the zone in doing so. He knows what pitches he is looking for and he attacks when he gets them.
Who is your favorite pitcher and why?
Mariano Rivera. I love that he just absolutely mastered one pitch. Hitters know what is coming but they just cannot hit it.
