All my life I've had my parents support in becoming a professional baseball player. There was never a Plan B for me, and they never doubted me. When the time came and I knew I was making a childhood dream become a reality, I knew I needed someone who would support me and never waiver, just like my parents always had done and that's what Tony does. He's an extension of my family and helps guide and support me as if he is one.
