Baseball Additional

My travel and High School coaches both say that I'm a leader. I believe in working hard. I show up early and stay late to stretch, run and improve. After hours my Dad and I hit at coach's house on a regular schedule, hitting between 500 and 1,000 balls a week on my own. You may find a full work up on my profile at http://members.baseballfactory.com/player/101047/ there you will see video as well as scouting reports and additional statistics. I would be delighted to send my page to anyone with interest. Additional references available upon request. I am passionate about Baseball and my community. When I'm not working on my game I'm volunteering in the community at various benefits to help improve the town I live in. I will play this game as long as possible and am focused now on getting to the next level.

Personal Highlights

Baseball Factory National Tryouts 2016:
Daniel is a broad, strong 2018 corner infield prospect who shows consistent improvement from event to event. He displays big time raw power with the ability to launch balls deep during batting practice. This switch hitting prospect has a solid swing from both sides of the plate, with a flat bat path and quick hands to the ball. He generates fast bat speed with a strong lower half and makes consistent, hard contact, spraying hard hit line drives to all fields. At third, he shows his athleticism with quick twitch reactions and movement that gives him great range. His glove is smooth and he presents his soft hands out front to field, showing off a live, strong arm to throw. Working on DP feeds will make him a complete third baseman. Daniel is a very exciting prospect who we expect to see playing at the next level. http://members.baseballfactory.com/player/101047/

Baseball Factory Pre-Season All American Tournament Jan, 2017:
Daniel continues to show well on the diamond. At 3B, he has active footwork and moves fluidly around the GB right to left. Hands are presented out in front with good glove extension. Transfer is smooth with strong throws on a line across the diamond. At the plate, he has active hands and gets good separation on his load. Swing is short/quick/compact as he squares the ball up and drives it on a line. Beaird has a solid all-around skill-set that will provide success in this only his junior year. http://members.baseballfactory.com/player/101047/

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

My education will prepare me for the future. Team sports develop life skills I can always rely on. Simply, baseball is in my blood, I love it!

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

Two weeks ago, after a tough league loss, we had a team meeting where coach asked us for input. I told the team to stop focusing on their individual stats "it's about winning" and asked that we ask ourselves what we can do to help the team. Coach said that I had "said it all". I try to lead by example through hard work, hustle and making good choices. I also have a deal with my Dad, we found an organization called ourrescue.org. they focus on freeing enslaved kids and women around the world. The deal is every time I hit a rocket, ( he agreed it didn't even need to be a "hit" just hit hard) we put 5 bucks toward a donation to them. So far I'm up to 90 $. Season is only half over I hope to keep tapping his wallet!

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

I run after practice, lift weights in my strength and conditioning class, try to eat right, ( not always easy) and I focus on thorough stretching.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I volunteer at many events within my community. I have served meals at fundraising events for the Rotary Club and others. Every year since I was 12 I have volunteered at a Christmas Memorial program honoring lost loved ones with the families. I have also worked to give back by assisting to coach and umpire Little League games in Chowchilla. Giving your time to help improve others lives and my community is the least I can do. In helping others and giving back real success can be found. I live in an awesome town where everyone pulls together to help each other, it's part of who I am.
