East Troy senior and Louisville baseball commit, AJ Vukovich, went from his normal to the "new normal" in the blink of an eye.

"I was in a good routine, just going to school every day and coming here after school. Now we are switched to online classes, and it's something I had to pick up pretty quick," says AJ.

Like most, AJ has adjusted to keep his life on track.

"So normally I wake up around 8:30 a.m. and get my school work done by eleven o'clock," says AJ.

Once school work is all done, then it's off the Hitters to take batting practice in isolation.

"I just take it one day at a time and try to get one percent better every day. If I do that and just focus on myself no matter the circumstances, it's going to happen," says AJ.

By staying back, staying patient, and never taking his eyes off the ball, AJ knows baseball will return.

On a humorous note, AJ adds he'll never take a busy schedule for granted again.

"You know there are a lot of times where kids are complaining, saying they are doing too much. It's hard to balance school, sports, and everything else in their lives. But I think people are realizing all those things are what makes everyone happy," says AJ.
