Who is Jasson Dominguez?
Jasson Dominguez's parents have been supportive of their son's career from an early age. The super star commenced baseball training at the age of eight. At 13 years, he was signed to Ivan Noboa as his trainer.
During his training at the Baseball Dreams Academy, Dominguez interacted with talented players, such as Jean Segura, Fernando Martinez, Nomar Mazara, and Jorge Bonifacio.
Jasson may have been destined to become a Yankee from birth after his father named him after the Bomber's hulking first baseman Jason Giambi. However, he is also working hard to learn English, where he can become a fluent speaker.
Despite the fame at a young age, the player has managed to rise above it and stay focused. His agent, Gio Rodriguez of CAA Baseball, revealed that they have a rule by which they play. He was quoted saying,
We have a joke where we say, Hey, don't believe the movie. And it's a big thing for us. We kind of bounce that off each other all the time. And I'll kind of mess with him and say, you haven't done anything yet. Let everybody else hype it up and all that, but we do not believe the hype.
We're going to work. So that's what this kid has done. He's put his head down since the day he signed. He's seen the expectations out there, and he's seen (his) trading cards going for thousands and thousands of dollars, but he just hasn't believed yet. He's working out like he's still looking for a bonus. And he hasn't stopped.
I try to keep him humble, but he's humble on his own. The kid is a freak athlete, but he's a freak of a person. He understands what he wants, and I've never seen a kid at 16, 17 years old tell you what he wants with conviction.
His work ethic and maturity are wise beyond his years, and I think baseball will see something really exciting continue to happen. We've had the Fernando Tatis Jrs. and Ronald Acunas of the world. I think this kid is going to be equally exciting because he's a worker.
He's one of those guys who doesn't believe the hype, but he's going to prove a lot of people right in thinking that he's the next star, and look out for it because it's going to be something special.
His agent, Gio Rodriguez, also revealed that he is a rare breed. Since knowing him at the age of 13, he has only improved and made strides in his performance and career. His training consists of long hours of practice, fielding drills, hitting, and agility.
