Recently, I experienced the most important moment in my baseball career to date on one sunny weekend at a baseball field in Cartersville, just northwest of Atlanta. On that sunny day in Cartersville, there were baseball scouts as far as the eye could see. Any team you could put your mind to was pretty much there in attendance. I remember this day perfectly because I had recently talked to Georgia Tech’s assistant coach about coming to watch me play at this game.

I remember that day as if it were yesterday, and my first home run will always be one of my happiest memories.

We lost our mojo a little bit when they scored four runs heading into the last inning.
