Greatest player I’ve taken a selfie with: Matt Liberatore. I think it was at Perfect Game or USA Baseball.

Breaking in a new glove: Sometimes I heat mine up in the oven and then immediately start throwing with it. I also hit it with a mallet.

My most influential man in baseball: My pops. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him.

My talent on America’s Got Talent: I could probably dance.

Favorite walk-up songs: Your Love by The Outfield and Still Dre by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.

First car I drove and dream car: The first car I drove was a GMC Sierra Truck. My dream car is a Corvette.

Teacher of influence: My English teacher, Dr. (Kim) Foster. She is always real with us and is teaching us life lessons in class. She helps us if we ever have a problem. She’s always there for us and she knows how our moms work.

My biggest pet peeve: I don’t have a pet peeve. I’m really chill. I worry about my own stuff.

My second-best sport is: It has to be football. I was a wide receiver and starting safety on defense in middle school.

Most memorable home run hit: Against Marist, I hit one to tie it up and I pimped it hard. My coach didn’t like that.

Most memorable home run delivered: I gave up one against Logan Cerny of Parkview (Lawrenceville). He hit a bomb when I was throwing lefty and I threw a change-up. I didn’t even watch it go. I just called for the ball back.
