Hello everyone and welcome to my website. Here's a little about myself and my baseball life.
I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. As a boy, I played baseball at West Valley Little League, and that is where I fell in love with the game of baseball. I played at Reseda high school before transferring for my freshman year of college at LA Valley College.
I transferred to Long Beach State for my sophomore and junior seasons playing under the legendary Dave Snow. During my time at Long Beach State, I was fortunate to be named to the Big West conference team, and named to the all "West" regional team in Fresno California.
In 1996 I was drafted in the 21st round by the Toronto Blue Jays (609 overall) and signed to play. During my time playing, I played in The NY Penn, Florida State, and Southern League. In St Catharine’s Canada (Short season A ball) I led the league in home runs and was awarded the orginization's Howard Webster Award (MVP of the team). In 1997 I played (High A) in the Florida State league leading the league in home runs, until being called up to AA Knoxville late in the season and winning the Howard Webster award again.
After 1998 season, I was listed by Baseball America as an “up and coming prospect” in the organization. However in 1999, I left the game of baseball for personal reasons and began a career with the Los Angeles Police Department.
Like a lot of people, I was not born with God given athletic ability. I worked every day to refine my skills to get the most out of my ability and was able to keep up with the competition. I was the first one at the field and many times the last one to leave. I know what it’s like to put in the hard work and to receive the rewards that come with it. So if you’re not afraid of hard work and a little sweat, then we're the right facility for you. I truly care about the game of baseball, and enjoy teaching it to others young and old. Hope to see you around the cages. Ack, Ack.
