Michael was the only freshman to make the varsity in 2014, when he split time between the varsity & JV. Last year, he cracked the starting lineup and was second on the team in RBIs. This season, his strong arm will also be put to use on the mound, where he will be called on in a relief role. His older brother Anthony was an outfielder at Southwest (class of 2015). Michael's biggest thrill in baseball was a triple for the Eagles JV team that tied the game in the last inning against Sunset. Anthony's biggest baseball thrill was striking out his little brother in the 2016 Alumni game.
