Hofstra University junior, Bryan Verbitsky, was recently selected as a pitcher by the San Diego Padres in the third round of the 2013 MLB Draft.
According to Verbitsky, his recent success is due in large part to his upbringing. “I had a pretty strict household growing up,” said Verbitsky in a phone interview with the Levittown Tribune. “My dad — now he’s a retired New York City detective — but when I was growing up he was still on the job and he and my mom had good morals and values and really instilled a sense of hard work and determination in me.”
