My name is Ethan Cortez and I am in the class of 2023. I am primarily a LHP but I also enjoying playing the outfield. At the moment, my curveball is my best pitch. I have had the most success producing outs when I get ahead in the count, forcing hitters to be as uncomfortable in the box as possible, and trusting the 7 guys behind me to have my back. Many times, opposing teams will under-estimate me because of my size-which is a big mistake-because I preform at my best when I am faced with adversity. Getting an opportunity to go to the mound and prove someone wrong fuels my fire. I may not be the best player on the field, but I am 100% positive that no one has the amount of intensity, fight and grit that I have. Away from the field, I enjoy hunting, fishing, and hiking at National Parks with my family. In the future, my goal is to play collegiate baseball and would like to major in sports media.
