Aoki Homers; Forces Way into Starting Role

The self-made-man is a person who's success is of their own making. Those close to Tanner Aoki know he is an example of that. He is constantly working on his craft and puts in the time to get stronger. Tanner bet on himself and walked onto D2 powerhouse Cal State University San Marcos. He wasn't guaranteed a spot on the team but earned it during the fall. He wasn't guaranteed playing time but earned it by strining together good ABs and strong defensive play. He was called into pinch hit and homered to deep RF for his first collegiate home run.  

He eventually earned a starting role with the team as their second baseman and with an important series with CPP tied 1-1, Aoki lifted San Marcos to victory with his 1st collegiate walk off winner to help his team to a 8-7 victory and series win. Those close to Aoki have heard it before and he forces them to hear it again.. "Hit Man strikes again!"
