Jon started coming into Arizona World of Baseball when he was only 13 years old and would spend hours each day practicing his game. This practice helped him when he attended Chandler High School in Chandler, Arizona. In High School Jon was a 2 time All-State selection.
After High School all of Jon’s hard work and countless hours spent at Arizona World of Baseball paid off big time as Jon was drafted as a switch-hitting catcher by the New York Yankees in the 1st round of the 2004 draft!!
Jon is one of two 1st round draft picks that Arizona World of Baseball has produced, but he certainly wont be the last! His father, Rudy, also has helped out at AzWob as a hitting instructor.
