Philadelphia Phillies Prospect
March 12, 2018

The New York Nine was very important in my life because they showed an enormous amount of commitment to me. They dedicated so much time to me which made me work harder and realize the talent that I really had. They showed me how the game was played in the “real world” of professional baseball and what I needed to do to get there. They then got me the opportunity to do that when no one drafted me. The experience and advice I got from the Nine opened my eyes and got me where I am today, playing with the Philadelphia Phillies organization.
