"Along with his dedicated commitment and endless hours at the ballpark this summer, Mike:
A) Was flexible and adaptive to scheduling games whenever needed (in a moments notice)
B) Always conducted himself in a positive and professional manner with all coaches, players, and guests at the ballpark.
C) Was always looking to improve his skillset before, during and after games through discussion and reflection.
D) Was always receptive to positive feedback and willing to share feedback with others to foster growth.
E) Knew when and where appropriate to offer advice or reminders or words of encouragement to players and coaches (on either team) without bias to foster development for the game of baseball
F) Always ensured that the integrity of the game of baseball was never diminished during every pitch.
I feel very fortunate to have worked with Mike this summer. I have learned lots from him and he looks to me for guidance at times as well. He’s an excellent team player with a passion and love for baseball no matter where he stands on the field"
