Trent is first and foremost a wonderful young man. He is coachable, hardworking, and respectful to his coaches and teammates. Trent’s best tool is his bat. He has an uncanny knack for grinding out at bats and finding the barrel. He had a very productive summer last summer in the Pacific Coast Collegiate League. Trent is not the player that is going to wow you just seeing him once, but the more you see him the more you realize what a good player he is.


SIGNING PREFERENCES

Trent is looking for a team overseas for the 2017-18 seasons. If a club were to set him up with accommodations and a job, he may be willing to pay for his flights if the situation is right. He is open to all offers.
