Carson Cross is a professional baseball player, yet he does not let this define his lifestyle. He is always seeking an adventure. He comes from an athletic family that led him into competitive sports at a young age. Growing up in rural New England, he couldn’t get enough of the outdoors, no matter the season. This love for nature and exploration helped him evolve into the person he is today. You can find him on a trail run, in a yoga class, on a day hike, or at the top of a ski resort ready for descent. He may throw baseballs for a living, but he is down for just about any action that can be done under the sun.
Carson is a graduate of the University of Connecticut with a dual degree in Urban Planning and Environmental Studies. During his time at UConn, he was drafted by a Major League Baseball team twice, was named Pitcher of the Year in his conference twice, and was named a Louisville Slugger All-American in 2015. When he wasn’t in the classroom or on the practice field, he was giving back to his local community as a member of Big Friends and Team Impact. Carson calls New Hampshire home, but is constantly traveling from city to city as his baseball career has him on the road for seven months of the year. During the off season you can find him training at Cressey Sport Performance, giving pitching lessons at local facilities, or on a weekend adventure with his brother Elliott. One thing is for sure though- he will be wearing a pair of his ASPIRE FOURs, which are versatile for his training, competition, and all the travel in-between.
