Chris’s Passion

Since Chris was a kid, baseball has been a passion. Even before Little League and high school ball, Chris enjoyed wiffle-ball in the back yard with his brothers. The smell of fresh cut grass, the sound of the ball hitting the glove, the feel of a wood bat in his hands all transport Chris to that backyard many years ago. During the past eight years, Chris picked up his bat again and plays adult league ball. Chris not only plays but he manages his adult baseball team and has guided them to two league championships. Since 2013, Chris has been coaching and managing his high school alma mater’s (Bishop McGuinness) JV baseball team. In addition to playing and managing, Chris watches every Yankee game and attends several Winston Salem Dash and Carolina Tarheel baseball games. Chris loves how baseball is a team sport where winning as a team is more important than individual goals and he gets to act like a kid again for a couple hours each week.
