Brady Robinson is the player to look for going into the baseball season. Brady is a sophomore at Afton High School who shows his athletic abilities in multiple different sports.
He plays football, basketball, baseball, and he runs track. He is a football receiver and corner, a guard in basketball, and his abilities are especially highlighted within the baseball realm, as he plays first base, outfield, and pitcher.
Robinson has been playing baseball since kindergarten, so he has a lot of experience in the sport. As he grew up playing baseball, what really impacted his love for the sport was the impactful coaching he received.
“I started working on pitching with Jeremy Herd when I was 8 and I’ve been working with Coach Knoten since about 6th grade,” Robinson said.
Through working with these different coaches, Brady improved as an athlete while also finding an appreciation for baseball that led him to continue playing throughout high school.
Baseball is a sport that requires patience and growth. Brady shares that in his many years playing baseball, the most valuable lesson he has learned is to not accept failure as defeat.
“I have learned that sometimes you fail,” Robinson said. “Even the greats in baseball go 3/10 in a career and are considered the best.”
As an experienced baseball player that has gained a lot of knowledge during his time on the field, Brady shared some valuable advice that he has gathered over time to encourage those who are just starting out.
“Baseball is a sport you must work hard to become good at,” he said. “Hitting a baseball is the hardest thing to do in sports. You can’t just pick up a bat and be good at it. You can’t just get on the mound and be able to consistently throw strikes. You must work to become good at it.”
Working hard is what has made Brady Robinson such an impressive athlete at Afton High School.
