Favorite class: History
Favorite athletic moment: When I was 12 I was on the all-star team playing against the American League team. It was 5-4 and I was up to bat with one man on. The pitcher threw me a first pitch fastball that I fouled off, and then came back with the same pitch and I hit a homer to win the game.
Favorite athlete: Manny Ramirez, only because when he hits a homerun and he knows it, it’s awesome to watch.
Dream profession: I couldn’t tell you what my dream profession is yet, hopefully it’s something to do with sports though because my love for athletics will never fade.
Personal file: I will hopefully continue to play baseball in college and will always play basketball as well.
