Humberto's Story

My passion is baseball.

Baseball became my passion when I started playing for my first team last year. The most important thing I learned was to have fun with the game, even if you win or lose. I fell in love with the sport and I felt that I had to get better in every aspect of the game. It became more than a game, it became a passion.

I will develop my passion by attending Nike Baseball camp and working my hardest to improve my performance. I think Nike Baseball Camp has what I need to improve my skills in the sport of baseball.

A Note from Mr. Perkins, Humberto's Teacher

"Humberto is an excellent candidate for Wishbone and Nike Baseball Camp. Humberto is a model student who currently holds a 3.6 GPA. In talking with Humberto's teachers, they report back that he is an excellent student who they love having in their classes. Among my advisees, Humberto stands out as a young man who is focused and doing all the right things academically. However, in a recent meeting with Humberto, we discussed extracurriculars and summer programs as an area where Humberto can better distinguish himself as a future college applicant. Humberto is quiet and soft-spoken, so a summer opportunity could push him outside his comfort zone. A summer opportunity like Wishbone would help Humberto continue to build confidence so he can succeed as a high school and then college student."

My experience at Nike baseball camp at Cal

My experience at the Nike camp at Cal went well and was really fun. I worked on all aspects of the game, including my hitting, defense, and also the mental side of baseball. I really enjoyed it and met a lot of good people there. I think I got better and I also know the game better. I would like to thank the people who made this happen, because I really did enjoy it. Thank you!

Excited for baseball at UC Berkeley

This year, I learned many things and experienced some obstacles. For example, it was hard for me keeping up with my algebra class because of leaving class a lot for baseball games. Although this has set me back a little bit, I am getting back on track and I won't let this stop me from doing the best I can in class. I am excited about attending this program because I can't wait to get back on the field, especially at UC Berkeley. This program will affect me positively in many ways, and it will definitely improve my game on the field.
