Like alot of guys, I grew up playing baseball, watching baseball and loving baseball. Once I found out there was not a big demand for undersized catchers who can't hit, my focus turned to boxing. After my boxing career came to end, I returned to my first love, baseball, playing in adult summer leagues. Soon after, I got the coaching bug and ultimately the scouting bug. I enrolled in the Baseball scouting and GM course at SMWW, I thought I knew the game, but after having long time scout Larry D'amato as an instructor, I realized I had alot more to learn. I learned a great deal about scouting, analytics and operations that I'm sure will help me become an assett to any organization. I continue to seek out scouting advice from Larry and other verteran scouts, on my scouting reports , so I can become the very best talent evaluator I can be.
