Elite Squad star pitcher confident returning to the CLPB; Interview with Ethan Kramer
West Palm Beach, FL. — As we become more familiar with the players in the CLPB this summer, there was one collegiate athlete we could not pass up getting to know.
Ethan Kramer, right-handed pitcher for Elite Squad Baseball has engrained himself as one of their top starters in the past few years.
After spending his freshman year at Florida Atlantic University, Ethan made the transfer over to Indian River State Community College. He explains his shift from D-I to top-tier JUCO baseball.
“…it was a transition phase where I had new coaches, teammates and practices. I believe these changes have forced me to learn how to adapt and become a better me.”
The Public Safety major is lucky enough to compete against some of his Indian River teammates, Luis Castillo and Yordani Carmona, members of the Palm Beach Marlins!
“It has been really fun competing against [Luis] Castillo and [Yordani] Carmona both of them are great competitors. It is always fun getting to be on opposite sides of the field….”
As a member of the Elite Squad, Kramer has been apart of the organization for five years now! He understands the value of some his long-time teammates.
“I’ve been blessed over the years with great teammates… makes playing baseball a lot easier knowing they will always pick you up and have your back.”
Kramer has utilized just one year of college eligibility so far, he explains how his mental side has built up.
“For me, the thing that has improved the most during my college career would be confidence.”
The sophomore out of Wellington, Florida, is quite familiar with the CLPB and has had a blast in his time here!
“I have loved every second playing in the CLPB, this is my second year in this league.”
As we cross the halfway point of the CLPB season, Elite Squad holds a 4-10 record.
With much more baseball scheduled this summer, Kramer is fully aware of the necessary actions to start winning more games!
“…we need to be better at the little things. We don’t struggle getting runners on, it’s more of driving the runs home. On the pitching side of things, we need to give less free bases and make the other team earn their runs.”
Ethan Kramer carries a 1-0 record with 13.1 innings pitched, 9 earned runs, and 9 strikeouts! Maintain a sharp eye on the crafty right-hander this summer into next fall!
