Tyler's Journey To Cooperstown

My passion is baseball and I have been playing it seriously for the last several years.  I am a committed year around player working with some of the top coaches and teams in the state and country!  Here's a little more about what I do and where I have been:

Primary Position: Catcher
Other: First, Third & Outfield 
Age: 12
Grade: 6th 

Selected Baseball Accomplishments: 
- Have played in over 2 dozen tournaments across the state and country
- Won 2 USSSA Tournaments 
- Scouted to participate in USSSA's Select 30 - where I represented California in a National Series in Florida 
- I play with commitment and passion
- I practice 2-3 hours 4-5 nights/week plus complete my studies in a demanding junior high Catholic School program

Selected School Accomplishments:
- I work hard as a student athlete carrying A/B grades. This commitment to my school work is as important as my sport
- My teacher this year is awesome and said, "Tyler is a conscientious, hard working student.  I appreciate how responsible he is"
-I have won my school's Mother Mary Award for being respectful, courteous, helpful and having caring behavior and the Knights of Columbus Award for courteous and kind behavior 

My team has been invited and I have the chance of a lifetime to play a 12-year old invitational baseball tournament in Cooperstown NY this July, 2018. As a result, my team and I will be inducted into the American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame.  

Cost for my entry, which I pay individually, is $2000 not including expenses to get me there, my equipment, etc. Your donation would significantly help me be part of a once in a lifetime opportunity! I would appreciate any help you can offer and understand if it's not possible at this time. 

I will keep you up-to-date on my exciting Cooperstown Adventure!

Thank you,
Tyler Cwiak
