2016 Interview

What positions do you play and what is your best position?
1B/EH/C

Who is the best softball player you have ever seen play?
Guys that have really stuck out to me would be Andy Purcell, Brian Wegman, and Bryson Baker….they seem to get the job done on both sides of the ball

Why do you like the game of softball?
I love the game mainly cuz it feeds the competitive side of me since my baseball career ended…it also allows me to travel new places and enjoy times w/ my softball family

Who is the best up and coming player in softball and why?
I'd have to say my boy, Orlando Castillo…I'm not sure I know anyone who works harder to get better and constantly strives to be the best he can be!

What is your nickname in softball and how did you get it?
No nickname in softball that I know of…

What is your height and weight?
6'2" 265lbs

Where do you call home?
Palatka, FL

What's your favorite way to spend an off weekend?
I love to do my share of fishing, watchin football, bein w/ my family, and 4wheeling

What do you do for a living?
I work for Clay Electric Cooperative

Did you play sports in High School / College / Pro?
I played baseball in high school and continued as a JuCo player…

How did you get your start in softball and how did you get to the upper level?
My pops always played when I was growin up, so it made sense to me to start when I was old enough…I picked up w/ Dave's Place in 2011 and made the jump to the conference in '12 as Demarini/Dirty

What was the most surprising difference between Conference play and non-Conference play when you made the jump?
Most everyone works hard on their game and I'd say the gloves are the biggest difference

Is there a player that you would compare your game to?
I prefer not to compare to anyone else…I just strive to be the best I can be and continue getting better

What would you say is your career highlight to this point? Maybe one play or game that sticks out to you in particular?
Career highlight would probably be finishin 3rd in my 1st Major World Series…highlighted by our big bottom of 7th inning in the opener against Taylor Made that kinda propelled us and set the tone for the weekend

In your career was there a single person (player/manager/coach) who had the most significant impact on your approach to the game? Why?
I've always tried to watch veteran players and how they play the game the right way…growin up watchin my pops play wide open all the time taught me to always play hard

What advice can you give a young player trying to break into the upper level?
Always give 100% and play ur heart out…leave it all on the field so u have no regrets!!

What type of batting grip do you use and what ounce bat?
Hockey grip JK JK….I hang my bottom hand pinky off and keep the handle out of my palms

What do you do in the offseason to prepare for the next softball season?
Weight lifting and bp

What is your favorite sports team and your favorite sport other than softball?
Baseball and I love my Atlanta Braves

Do you have any superstitions and if so, what are they?
I have the same pre at bat routine everytime

What would be your "at bat" music selection?
Young Jeezy- Put On

What is the best improvement upper level softball could make?
I enjoy the way it is

What is your favorite non-World tournament and why?
I enjoy the Smoky cuz we all can free swing all wknd and I enjoy most any charity tourney

What is the best softball field/complex you have played at and why?
I'd have to say the Disney Stadium…unlike any other when the lights are on

Where is the best place to eat on the road after a game?
Anywhere that serves breakfast food late

What is the funniest thing you have ever seen on a softball field?
Too many to name w/ Mike Wrenn
