Jake Vander Wal Appreciates What His Father Has Taught Him

Jake Vander Wal is the son of one of the most productive pinch-hitters in baseball history, John Vander Wal.  Jake is completing his senior season at Forest Hills Central (MI) High School and will be attending Ohio State next year.

John played for eight major league teams during 1991-2004, becoming a pinch-hitting specialist with 129 career pinch-hits.

Jake says much of what he has learned about baseball can be attributed to his father’s influence and tutelage.  He hopes to one day play in the big leagues like his father.
