What does it mean for you to represent your country at this level? I love that I get the chance to represent my country once again at such a level. It makes you want to step up your game so much more just to have USA across your chest.
What are the keys to the success of the USA Softball Junior Men’s National Team entering the World Championships? To come together as a team and as friends, not as one person trying to out play everybody else. It takes a team to win championships not individual players.
What you do enjoy the most about fast pitch softball? Just to be there with our friends doing the thing that you love to do.
How did you get started in fast pitch? A friend (Austin Tuttle) introduced me to it.
