“Jesus Villalobos is one of the finest leaders I have ever coached in college baseball. He will drag players to the field, make them hit and take defensive reps with him. As a player, he can play all postilions in the infield and will give you quality at bats. He is a true student of the game. Jesus will be helping us this year as a student assistant as he completes his degree.”
Jesus is looking for a club which can pay his round-trip airfare, provide accommodations, and a monthly salary to cover his living expenses.
