Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Your coaching had a huge impact on my life, not just baseball. You’ve helped me incredibly as an athlete and as a person. Much of the values I have I’ve taken from you. For the Olympics I was in the best shape of my life mentally and physically—I was totally focused and in the zone.
