What is your favorite sports team and why?

I wouldn’t say I have a favorite sports team; I care more about the players on the team rather than having a favorite. For example, last season I was rooting for the Dodgers until the Nationals made the playoffs.

What is your major?

I attend Trinity International University and my major is business administration.

What would you say is your biggest highlight in your sport career?

My best highlight was in high school. I was playing travel ball when my team was down three and I hit a walk off grand slam to win the game. My most memorable moment was when we represented the Dominican Republic in a tournament in Orlando, we won the tournament without dropping a game.

What would you say your hidden talent is?

I would say that my hidden talent probably would be video games and any other competitive activities.

Do you have a nickname if so, why was it given to you?

I wouldn’t say I have a nickname but sometimes they call me the lefty in the field.

Why did you choose The Collegiate League of the Palm Beaches?

My friend recommended it to me, he told me the emphasis of working out and playing summer ball at the same time. I like the fact that I will be able to work out in a nice facility doing a lifting program as well as getting baseball help from professionals in the area.
