Under the guidance of his father, Reggie began playing sports at five years old. Through practice, commitment, and focus, he excelled in high school, where he played three years on the varsity baseball team. He was named to the New York Daily News All-State Team two years in a row.

 

Reggie was recruited by dozens of col­leges and chose Northwestern University, a member of the Big Ten Conference.  As he was completing his Junior year, he was drafted by the Seattle Mariners but turned down the offer to continue his studies. Following graduation, Reggie was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates and played in their minor league organization for four years. During his career, he played against three MLB Hall of Famers – Greg Maddox, Barry Larkin and Roberto Alomar and with or against stars such as Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonilla, Rafael Palmeiro, Ellis Burks, and Joe Girardi. A wrist injury ended his professional playing career, but he never lost his love of the sport.

 

Once his career ended, Reggie used his energy, determination, and drive to become a certified New Jersey high school History teacher and then went on to Wall Street to become a licensed wealth manager.   

 

Reggie lives by a simple creed: (1) God first; (2) work hard; and (3) be the best you can be…always. He hopes that this book will inspire the next generation of baseball players and those that support them.
