RECENTLY RECEIVED FROM TASBA'S LATEST PROFESSIONAL CONTRACT ATHLETE:
To Future TASBA Families,
For as long as I can remember I've always wanted to play professional baseball. My dad played, his friends played, I watched it everyday on TV growing up. When I passed up on the opportunity to sign out of high-school, it's because I had my own plans. I was going to attend Baylor and then sign when I finished my career there after getting my degree. Little did I know, my own plans soon began to unfold.
After I finished my last year at Baylor I didn't have the opportunity to sign professionally. My dream seemed to come to a close. Fortunately my Dad and Pat Reid were college teammates and Pat lived down the road in Austin.
Since I needed an extra semester to graduate, I decided to dedicate all my time on learning how to pitch. I never threw a single inning in high school or at Baylor. Pat put me through the ringer and really pushed me hard because he knew what I wanted to achieve.
Spending my weekends down in Austin with Pat was a sacrifice I was willing to make because I knew that Pat really had my best interest in mind. Pat wanted me to succeed just as bad as I wanted to.
The time I spent with Pat was priceless and he put me in a perfect situation in order for me to excel. A common question that I get now is, "Who taught you how to pitch?" I can confidently say that Pat Reid is the sole reason for where I'm at today in my career, a professional pitcher.
Without his knowledge of the game and love for helping young men grow, I would be working in the real world, while my dream slowly slipped away.
Thank you Pat for dedicating your time and allowing me to learn from you. I truly appreciate that.
