These twin brothers play for Hudson Valley Renegades 14U Blue and they have never been on a team without each other. During the East Coast Nationals tourney at Baseball Heaven on August 10, they each hit a home run in the same game, contributing to the Renegade’s win!
Nicky pushes Danny mostly on the practice field or in the batting cage. Nicky will point out the areas that Danny needs to tweak to improve, such as his swing. Nicky admires Danny’s ability to stay calm and focused in the most high-stake situations. He often will say that Danny has ice in his veins because he can handle any situation with a focused and intense approach.
Danny pushes Nicky with their competitive approach to everything. Danny admires Nicky’s pitching ability, his never-give-up approach, his ability to get out of very difficult situations, and his intense competitive nature.
