Your Goals for the season: As a catcher, I want to throw out 40% of runners this year. I want to maintain a batting average over .400. I want to run the mile under 7:45.   As a teammate, I would like to work harder to be a leader and role model for my team, so that we can win the World Series, and do well in Cooperstown this season.

About Me. I have been playing baseball since I was 4 years old through the Eastvale Little League. I have always looked up to my dad for baseball, and my mom for academic help. My dad was a 1st baseman as a child, so I thought to myself that 1st base was going to be my position. However, by chance, I experienced the world of a catcher during my 7U season. I have loved catching ever since, and continue to thrive and strive to keep growing as the captain behind the plate.  All throughout elementary school, I have maintained straight A’s for the last 5 years. Now I am in Jr High as a 7th grader at River Heights Intermediate School.   I truly love math with a passion, and also enjoy science.   I have been practicing Muay Thai as well for the last year, a combat sport that involves punching, kicking, elbowing, and knees. I attend a facility called Heart & Pride Muay Thai in Ontario, CA and currently have my green band. I am also learning how to play the guitar right now in school as one of my electives and I am having lots of fun!
