Why do you want to play baseball in Niagara Falls?:
I love the opportunity to travel, and have never had the chance to go to New York, so being able to play in NY this summer was the perfect opportunity for that. My roommate is also from the east coast and I have heard awesome things about the summers there. Finally, I love the opportunity to play for a team that has the goal of glorifying God at it center.
What do you hope to do after college?
My dream would be to get drafted and be able to continue to play baseball after college. If that does not work out, I would love to go into a management development program with a local company and start working in the business world.
