GILBERTO ROSARIO

Dominican- American, Born and raised in the Bronx New York. Moved to Houston. Bilingual, charismatic, and relentless. Completed my Associate degree in Sports Management at Monroe College and completed my Bachelors in Kinesiology at Jarvis Christian College.

 

I have been an athlete my whole life, aiming towards a career in Major League Baseball.  I thrive every single day for that, with resilience and dedication.

Through my life experience in this sport, I’ve developed strong leadership and the ability to respond well to adversity and pressure, I say it’s home for me.

 

I’ve developed a marathon mentality. Life is a marathon and you just have to keep on moving at your own pace. As long as you cross the finish line.

 

My plans after completing my degree are to play professional ball for as long as I can and teach the game that I love and the morals I stand on that keep me fighting for my dream to the next generation.

Roger played high school baseball in Chicago where he lettered all 4 years, received All-City and All-State selections and was lucky enough to continue his playing career collegiately at two junior colleges while earning his Associate’s of Science in Biology.  From there, he finished my career at Ohio State University where I earned a Bachelors of Science in Psychology. I am extremely passionate about baseball as I see it as an outlet where kids can learn vital skills that they can take with them for the rest of their life.  A good coach can take a kid a very long way.
