“It's pretty amazing what an impact four days can have. The power of experience is second to none; but to gain it, you have to go out of your comfort zone and do something you never once thought you would. And once you do you'll never stop proving yourself wrong. When I was given the opportunity to work with 297 Baseball Academy I jumped at the chance. I knew it was time to come out of my comfort zone. From communicating with the younger kids in broken Spanish, to meeting the incredible locals who keep 297 running on the island, and immersing myself in more of the culture than I ever could from a resort, I learned a great deal about myself and what I am capable of. Your life is happening right now and your comfort zone is no place to stay. Such a special thank you to Brodie Carey and 297 Baseball Academy for everything. ”​
