“I had many valuable learning experiences at Westminster in the classroom and on the baseball field. The most valuable learning experience for me was playing the game of baseball. Baseball is a very humbling game and I learned to be prepared and work hard. When you have a game that did not go as you wished you have to jump right back in and try again. The game of baseball is a great sport that allows you to learn many great life lessons.”
