hit for average, but had good power before i turned into a pitcher. have hit a few balls over 420ft.
If you pitch, what type of pitcher are you... Power? Ground ball, Fly ball, Knuckleball?
always calm and focused, get alot of ground and fly balls. when it comes to competing on the mound, i have the heart of a lion.

Who is your favorite hitter and why?
People may not agree with this one but, my favorite hitter since i was a youngster is Barry Bonds. the bat speed he always generated was amazing. I know what people think about him now , but he was always an amazing woodsman.
Who is your favorite pitcher and why?
Andy Petite - mechanically and mentally a solid pitcher, always admired his competiveness.

Started pitching at Los Angeles harbor college, never pitched before that. when i first began i was around 83-84 mph. worked very hard and got up to 91mph. still throw in the upper 80's today on a good day maybe touch 90's.learned alot from Tom House about proper mechanics. Now i am back in Phila, and thinking maybe its time to start teaching others what i have learned along the road.
