What does it mean to play for USA Softball? Getting to put on the uniform with USA across the chest is an incredible opportunity to play for something bigger than myself. It's going to be an exciting experience and I'm incredibly grateful. 

What is your favorite thing about Men's Fast Pitch? The community. It's such a small niche sport, which makes the community really tight-knit. Once you've played for a few years, you know most of the people involved and that's one of the coolest parts - getting to know people from all over the world. 

If you could give young softball athletes one piece of advice, what would it be? Embrace the challenge and failures. 

What is your most memorable moment on the softball field? Hitting a home run off Adam Folkard, who had played with my dad at the tail-end of my dad's playing career.

What non-softball sport would you like to try? Tennis.

Three words to describe yourself: Goofy, Outgoing, Easy-going.

If you could only bring one thing with you on a deserted island, what would it be? I'd probably have to bring a person, it would be boring by myself. Gal Gadot, probably.
