“If we want to go, we’ll make it happen,” he said. “It wouldn’t be too bad, but obviously free school is a little more appealing and the baseball situation.”
There is a strong belief around the Wolves’ program that Greenwood can make it at the next level, too. A left-hander, he is currently hitting .379 with 17 RBIs from the leadoff spot.
“For me coaching him and having him for this many months, you see that he can do it and make it,” Santa Fe first-year coach Ryan Phillips said. “I don’t know that college coaches give him that much time to let him develop because there’s money involved or a spot available. But if somebody gives him a chance, there’s no doubt he’ll play at some point within his four years.”
That’s all Greenwood is hoping he gets no matter his decision.
“I’ll play and I’ll continue to work hard and improve and try to do the best I can at that level, too,” he said about MIT. “I’ll put all of my heart into it wherever I go and enjoy it, too.
“I like baseball too much to give it up.”
