Do you plan on continuing playing baseball in college? Tell us
about where you are going to school and why you chose it?
I am interested in playing baseball in college. I will be attending
Monroe College in New Rochelle. It is a (National Junior College Ath-
letic Association, NJCAA) Division 1 school, that went back-to-back years
to the (NJCAA Division 1 Baseball) College World Series. I’m choosing

Who is your favorite professional athlete and pro or college sports team?
Javier Baez and the Toronto Blue Jays.
What is your favorite music to listen to warming up for a game?
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
To y, because it would be awesome to be 100 feet in the air and see things from
If you could pick one place to visit on vacation that you’ve never been to, where
would you go and why?
Italy, because of the views, ocean and the food.
What is your favorite food to eat before or after a game?
Beef stew with mashed potatoes.
Best place to eat in Yorktown and why?
Yorktown Pizza and Pasta, because they have the best garlic thin slice pizza.
Facebook, Twitter or Instagram? Why?
Instagram because I don’t like Facebook or Twitter.
For a young athlete growing up in the Yorktown district, what would you
tell them about the experience of being part of the baseball team and why
should they go out for the team?
I would tell them to work very hard day in and day out to make the team and
once they are on it work even harder because just being on the team is when you
will make the best memories in high school.
