Zachary Chhabria (’23) commits to Drew University for baseball
February 5, 2023
Zachary Chhabria has been an integral part of East High baseball for four years and has committed to Drew University to continue his athletic and academic career. He started playing baseball when he was only six years old and has since had the opportunity to play for the SJ Mutineers. Zachary’s dad and grandfather have been an inspiration during his baseball career, “teaching [him] valuable lessons about the game and offering advice to help [him] succeed.” His dad even gave him the number three, which he proudly wears on his jersey.
At East, Zachary has made a name for himself through his dedication and hard work. Dave Martin, one of the baseball coaches, noticed Zachary’s potential and helped him refine his stance and relax at the plate.
Throughout high school, Zachary’s baseball experience has been amazing. He fondly remembers winning the tournament last year and getting the first hit of the game, a double off the wall against a Division 1 commit. He also cherishes the moment he got his first varsity start by getting the very first ground ball of the game.
Zachary’s baseball experience has been one of dedication, hard work, and success. He has worked diligently to become the best player he can be and has made a lasting impact on the East High baseball program. His determination and drive have paid off, and his favorite memory from his high school career will undoubtedly remain with him for many years to come and we are excited to see what the future holds for him.
