Sophomore Michael Silva is a longtime baseball and soccer player. He is part of a family legacy of baseball players, starting with his grandfather. His father’s decision to play soccer also influenced Silva’s desire to participate in the sport. Silva enjoys bonding with both his grandfather and his dad through their mutual participation in the activity. He hopes to eventually pass on his love of sports to his children to continue the family legacy of playing baseball.

“I’ve been doing competitive soccer for a while — about 10 years or so — and baseball about seven years. I started when I was four years old with soccer and ten years old with baseball. My dad played both of those sports and my grandpa played baseball. They both influenced me to play it and I heard so many stories about both of them — how they were good — so I wanted to try it out. Me and my dad, we would go out and play catch and do stuff, and watch the world series. my dad, he pushed me a lot on both of them. He was my coach. My grandpa was too old, so he just watched the sport.”
