How long have you been playing baseball?

What position do you play?
“I play outfield.”
Why did you choose to attend LCC?
“I came here originally because of the great baseball program and a scholarship for baseball.”
What makes a great teammate?
“A great teammate is someone who works hard – not just for themselves, but for the team and the bigger picture. They help others get better and do the little things without being asked, such as picking up trash or getting out equipment that the team needs. (Great teammates are) people who change the program in a positive way.”
