Bio

Head coach Tim Corbin on McKenzie: “We like the possibilities with TJ. He is a kid that can do many things on the field athletically as shown by his versatility in the infield and outfield. The biggest jump that he has made has been with his strength and it has shown in his offensive performance. He has a very high ceiling when it comes to what he potentially could be.”
