Playing for the Midwest Nationals in high school completely elevated my pro career. I received high quality coaching and development while playing at some of the best venues and against the best competition in the country. I was given the opportunity to play in front of both high level college coaches and professional scouts. My experience with the Nationals was both educational in baseball and in preparing myself for life skills. Learning to travel and play with a diverse group of players better prepared me for my career in professional baseball. It is because of the Midwest Nationals that I have founded an affiliate program (Southwest Nationals) in the Phoenix Arizona area, so that I to, can offer the same product and have a hand in furthering the baseball careers of young men.
