Schlittler has had a strong passion for baseball for the majority of his life. His father placed him in T-ball at a young age and they constantly practiced the game in their backyard at home. He believes that having his father’s influence and support shaped him as an athlete.
“I think my dad has been the biggest help,” Schlittler said. “He has always been there for me and never lost hope in me. He supported me even when I didn’t have my best games. My dad was always an amazing role model.”
Both Costello and Schlittler have high expectations for this upcoming season, and they hope to win the championship. While Schlittler has innumerable achievements, he still has more aspirations and wishes to add to his resume this year. His senior year will hopefully end with another league title.
“My expectations are high. We should win the Super 8 [baseball tournament]; that’s how I feel and that’s how my teammates feel,” Schlittler said. “We did very well last year, and we are a young team, so we have the ability to win it.”
