What is your major: I’m taking business because I like numbers and a lot of money.

Who is your baseball hero? I admire Derek Jeter and Brandon Crawford, they have been my two favourite players growing up. I love them both because they played the game the right way and both are amazing defenders. Jeter has a really good mentality and great baseball IQ for the game.
