Meet Desaray, Julian and Patrick!
This summer, we want to introduce you to some of the players, families, coaches, and volunteers who make up RBI Austin. Meet three of them here!
In her first year of playing with RBI Austin, Desaray is on the 13U Softball Red Sox. She has a bubbly, outgoing personality and can strike up a conversation with any girl on the field, whether they are on her team or not!
Her hobbies outside of softball include playing other sports like volleyball, soccer, basketball, and kickball. And she loves eating pepperoni pizza!
“My coaches are awesome!” Desaray said. “They make our whole team laugh a lot. They encourage us and make us believe we can do anything. And they let us have fun every time we come out to a practice or game.”
RBI Austin loves when entire families get involved. Desaray has multiple family members playing in the league this summer. Her brothers Anthony and Adrian and her cousin Israel play on the 10U Kid Pitch Astros. Her other brother Johnathan plays for the T-ball Nationals.
Desaray’s favorite position to play is first base because she likes to get people out. She loves every opportunity that she gets to play the great game of softball!
We hope to see you and your family for many years, Desaray!
This is Julian’s first time playing with RBI Austin and he plays on the 12U Kid Pitch Longhorns. Julian says he enjoys playing with RBI Austin because “you get to try your hardest and have fun at the same time!”
His favorite position to play is right field. He loves chicken alfredo and pork chops, and he wants to be in the military when he grows up. He also plays soccer and can do some tricks, including juggling the ball on his head. His favorite MLB team is the Texas Rangers.

Patrick is four years old and will start kindergarten in the fall at Kocurek Elementary.
This summer is Patrick’s first time playing baseball, and he loves it! He is on the T-Ball Aggies and had a game on Monday. Patrick had so much fun that he could not stop smiling!
In addition to baseball, Patrick enjoys playing outside with other kids. His favorite foods are yogurt and fries because they’re yummy!
His mother Jessica is volunteering with his team. She first heard about RBI Austin through Total City Sports (TCS), a sister organization and also part of the For the City Network. At TCS, Jessica volunteered as a team mom. When she heard about RBI Austin from another volunteer, she wanted to sign Patrick up for a fun summer of baseball.
“I love the atmosphere with RBI Austin. The interactions between parents, coaches, and players are awesome. When Patrick became old enough to play, I wanted to jump in and sign him up!” Carrillo said.
Patrick and Jessica – thanks for being a part of the RBI Austin family! We hope you have a fun summer!
