Pro Player - INF
Hello! My name is Grayson Radcliffe and I am a passionate and resilient athlete that spent 4 years of my collegiate career at Indiana University after playing my freshman year at Marshall University. I am a defensive enthusiast that has spent time playing shortstop, second, and third base. I love the intricacies of defense and enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. I hit right handed and love breaking down different individuals swings to help them be the most confident and successful hitter that they can be. My will is for you to feel empowered to dream B1G and put in the work to get there.
