I am pleased to write this letter on behalf of Miguel Vega. First I would like to wish him well in all his ventures in the game of baseball. I have had the pleasure of coaching Miguel over the past 3 years. In my position as Head Coach of his select baseball team, I could not be more complimentary of the way he goes about his business. Miguel is a respected kid on and off the baseball field. One of my favorite traits of Miguel’s is his commitment and drive to improve in every aspect of his game. In all my 23 years in the game of baseball, I haven’t seen a kid with more ability than his. Miguel’s leadership skills are impeccable. Every one of his teammates look to him to do big things to help the team win. He has the ability to take control of the game with one swing of the bat. His skill set brings a big bat with incredible bat speed and a knowledge of the game that would be common to a college player. All of his success is derived from the dedication of his loving mother and grandfather. They have raised a great kid who will make a coach very proud to have him. I am confident that Miguel will be a thriving success in the game of baseball. I have had the joy of building a lifetime relationship with this young man. I wish him the best of luck in this chapter of his life.-Trey Webb (5th round pick for the Montreal Expos and 7 years of professional baseball)

Miguel is one of the brightest kids you will ever meet. His desire to excel at everything he does that has to do with the game of baseball is unmatched. Miguel is mature well beyond his age, he has an outstanding baseball IQ that has allowed him to gain the respect of his teammates, peers, and coaches. Miguel’s 6’2, 200 lb frame sounds like a corner infielder body type, but this kid can make plays at shortstop that you would not believe. I have seen him make plays to his backhand that were followed by a jump throw, as well as plays up the middle that require him to completely spin around, taking his eyes off first base, and making a perfect throw. While Miguel’s defense is a tool in it’s own, his pitching and hitting are the two things that will stand out to you the most.Miguel throws a 4-seam fastball that ranges around 80-plus. He has a good assortment of off-speed pitches (cutter, “thumper”, change-up). Miguel is a one of kind in many different ways, you don’t find a kid with as much physical talent at the age of 14, but more importantly you can’t look past the mechanical parts of his game. His motion on the mound, from the wind-up, gives the hitter a different look as he incorporates a slight hitch, while he explodes downhill.

               I have coached baseball from the ages of 11-18 and Miguel has hit the two longest homeruns I have ever seen. Miguel has played against the best of the best competition wise and his game has never had to change. Miguel’s combination of strength, pitch recognition, and ability to hit the ball where it is pitched, matches that of any 14-year-old athlete in the country. Miggy’s ability to keep his hands inside the ball, his ability to drive his backside, and his ability to lead with his hips and keep his hands in the strike zone are only some of the highlights of his offensive game.

I can truly say that whenever Miguel comes to the plate, I become a fan. The kid puts on an absolute show.
