Aidan Park is a recognized student athlete at the Buckingham, Browne & Nichols School (Cambridge, MA) who is a relative newcomer to the Nokona Baseball program. After years of playing for a competing program, Aidan joined our 14U team two summers ago for their tournament in Myrtle Beach, NC and was an immediate hit with his teammates and coaches. He was a natural fit for the program and joined a very talented 15U team for last summer’s campaign, where he excelled as a two-way player, especially on the mound where he went 5-0 with a 2.19 ERA.
Standing at 6’5”, Aidan is an imposing figure on the diamond and continues to progress as a player through hard work and determination. Aidan is a sure glove at first base and has had success at the plate coming through with some clutch hitting in tournament play—but his pitching is perhaps the area where he has the most upside. He is a raw talent with a great deal of untapped potential and, if last summer is any indicator, Aidan projects to be a dominant force on our staff next summer. Before then, he hopes to be a key component of the BB&N rotation this spring as they attempt to win their 3rd straight ISL Championship.
Aside from his obvious skills as a player, one of the things that sets Aidan apart both on and off the field is the leadership and good sportsmanship he so often demonstrates. Rarely does a player make such an immediate impact on a new team and program; he has quickly garnered the respect and trust of his teammates within the Nokona Baseball program.
Currently in his junior year (class of 2018) at BB&N, Aidan maintains a 3.9 GPA and while he desires to play baseball at the collegiate level, academics is his number one priority. He lists Science and History as favorite subjects and is the President of Liberty in North Korea, which funds trips to bring refugees to safety. During the Summer of 2015, Aidan was selected to play for a team out of Boston that travelled to Italy and won the Sala Baganza international baseball tournament. He currently resides in Medford with his mother and father and two siblings.
