The recipient of a bachelor’s degree in politics from The Catholic University of America, Daniel Pezzola is a delivery driver for Washingtonville Pharmacy who was recently accepted for a one-year service placement in Syracuse with FrancisCorps. Beyond his passion for community service, Daniel Pezzola is an avid fan of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) New York Mets.

In the midst of a disappointing 2017 season, the Mets dealt 31-year-old infielder Neil Walker to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for a player to be named later. The Mets also agreed to pay a portion of the $4.7 million he was owed throughout the remained of the seasons. The deal was finally complete on September 12 as the Mets received minor league pitching prospect Eric Hanhold. According to a source within the Brewers, the Mets were given a choice of three low-level relief pitchers and opted for Hanhold, a sixth-round pick of the Brewers in the 2015 MLB Amateur Draft.

After a rocky first two seasons in the minor leagues, Hanhold was much improved in 2017 as he posted a win-loss record of 8-3 to go along with a career-best earned run average of 3.94 for the Carolina Mudcats of the Class-A Carolina League. Walker, meanwhile, has hit for a .257 batting average in 24 games since joining Milwaukee.
