My Modell’s Defining Athletic Moment: Took place a few years ago when I was playing at Arcadia.  It was a big conference series against DeSales.  It was the bottom on the 7th inning, there were two out and two men on base.  We were losing by 1 run.  I ended up poking a single down the right field line and both runs scored.  It gave us a big conference win and pushed us into that playoffs that year.
