At 17 years, Landon Bonneville has his pro-baseball career in approachable sight. The prospect is destined to succeed on the pitch, but is also making sure he has more assets than his right hand to rely on.
What image do we have of young athletes these days? Overhyped, spoilt, lazy, overpaid, there is a lot of prejudice that comes with a successful career in sports.
Although most success stories are very much proof against poor work ethic and other accusations, the negative images are often are heavy burden to carry for prospects that are still in their teenage years. That being said, today we are focussing on a pro-baseball prospect that is the best example of what a driven and motivated young individual can hide behind a successful athlete.
Besides the discipline and talent it takes to make the cut amongst the very best, the motives and goals behind young sportsman Landon Bonneville are extremely humble.
Bonneville credits his family for the opportunity and support he has been given and wants to pay him back by being as successful as he can. And at 17-years with three team-USA appearances, the MLB is now something realistic to talk about.
Landon Bonneville is a catcher and right handed pitcher, who has modelled his game after current free agent Trevor Bauer.
And Off The Pitch?
With everything heading in the right direction on the baseball field, the ace is almost equally successful in his life behind the sport. Hundreds of sponsors including major brands acknowledge his potential as well as his talent when it comes to engaging with audiences. With over a million followers across his social media platforms, Landon Bonneville has pretty much effortlessly secured himself another avenue.
His second passion though, is music. The idea of working as a sound engineer in the studio as well as for live shows in the future excites him just as much as his aims in baseball and it will be interesting to see how he will be able to combine the two.
