Type of hitter... Power? Average? Slap? Pull?
Hit for a very high average with a great deal of doubles in the gaps and linedrives up the middle. Got power in college to all fields and continued both average and as a power hitter when got into minors but career was ended due to a rare illness.
If you pitch, what type of pitcher are you... Power? Ground ball, Fly ball, Knuckleball?
I was also a fastball and changeup pitcher in both college and high school. My best pitch was a cutter I used to hit the outsides of the of the plate at around 88mph and then dropped a change up on the outside dropping at around 80mph. In high school I started and was the closer. I was also able to change arm angles from three-quarters, to straight over. Started and became closer in college.

Who is your favorite hitter and why?
My favorite hitter right now is a toss up with albert puljos being the best because he not only is a power hitter but hits for an average that includes hitting the baseball hard everytime at bat. In my opinion those who can hit the ball sweetly each time rather a hit or not is the best hitter out there because he will eventually get a hard hit. Jason Heyward is my favorite young hitter to watch with a very beautifullefthanded swing and size to hit one out everytime but hitting ability to drive it up the middle
Who is your favorite pitcher and why?
I grew up loving Greg Maddux and he is my favorite pitcher in how hit could hit the corners and control a game without having to through over 90.
Additional Playing/Coaching Info (If applicable, include detailed info here such as - HS, College, Pro Leagues, Summer Leagues, Arm Speed, 60 Time, Catcher Pop Time, etc.):
Made all aea in the southeast tennessee in high school, signed college scholarship with Tennessee Wesleyan College and finished my career with a few games before a rare illness ended my playing career. I coached summer league teams and have instucted hitters from around Southeast Tennessee.
More About Me:
I played baseball all of my life from the age of 3 until I was 21 when I was hit with a very rare illness that has consumed my life for the past 13yrs I am now getting better after surgery I had in Jan. and with God's strength I will get better. I do have some college credits but college was put on hold due to my illness and I have been unable to finish my degree and at my age of 32 I just want to get into the coaching, teaching and or instructing baseballI am jsut wanting to fid away to do that.
