Adamski officially ends his final baseball season

lly concluded his final year as the third baseman and pitcher for John Carroll’s varsity baseball team. In a season filled with ups and downs, it’s a season he will never forget.
Frank found his interest in playing baseball when his parents signed him up for the sport when he was four-years-old. He feels like he picked up the sport a lot easier than others and was much more skilled and performed at a higher level than the kids around him.
“I loved the competitiveness and speed of the game, so it’s kind of just stuck with me my entire life.”
Frank had many memories of playing baseball, but two stood out in his mind. “First, traveling to Cooperstown with my team and competing. To this day, that was the most exciting tournament I have ever been a part of. I was a 12-year-old kid having fun with my teammates and families.”
The second memory to stand out is “advancing to the MIAA championship. We had to scratch and claw our way up to the championship, but we did it… everything that the team had been through, and we had reached our goal.”
Head Coach Darrion Siler commented, “Frank’s immensely impactful — one of the team’s leaders and a highly talented player.”
Frank’s experience over the past four years have given him greater responsibility in leadership, and as a senior, he had embraced that role.
Frank explained, “School always comes first, and I have learned to accept that. Doing my work in school made my life a lot easier. It gave me the ability to go to practice and training and come home with no worries.”
Frank plans to play baseball at Coastal Carolina University and hopes to continue beyond that. More than just baseball, Frank enjoys graphic design and making commitment edits for athletes and has contributed to the official JC baseball account for game day posts.
Frank concluded, “No matter what happens, I want my team to know that I would give up everything if it meant we got where we needed to be. Every stat, every award, and every recognition would all go out the window if someone told me my team would reach its goal. I am here for them, not for myself.”
