Clay’s most memorable moments as a high school athlete is all the hours he truly spent into this sport and in the other areas of his life.
The most important thing Clay has learned while playing baseball is that if you want to be good, you simply have to put in the reps or you will not succeed.
Clay’s favorite professional baseball player is Fransisco Lindor because he started from nothing and built his way up through lots of adversity, learning how to speak our language and then finally becoming a Major League player.
Clay stated that when it comes to the coronavirus he is trying to be cautious and not panic. He tries to stay positive about the whole thing and just live his life.
