    Congratulations bro. You did yourself and you’re community proud. Thanks for setting an example for all those who think and feel we can’t don something meaningful and fun with our lives. Many won’t know but a lot of baseball league in Europe is bigger than (NBA)- we’re just on the western side of the world. I only asked that you keep and first and all will be well. The Sky ain’t the limit-it’s just the view.

    Don't forget that Fahie was the one that opened the door for these young men to go to the US and display their talent while getting an education.

    Proud of you "son". And knowing that your mom did a great job of keeping you disciplined while
    growing up. Also proud of being your first coach(not basketball).

    Stay focused!
