- What do you think your record will be at the end of the season?
I know it will take a good run, but I think we can at least finish 12-16. Our record does not really show the quality of games that we have played. Other than week 1 against the Diablos, we have been in every game that we have played so far this year.
- What excited you about bringing your own team into the league?
I have known a few people who have played in the league over the past few years and have been waiting for an opportunity to play in the KWL. Once I heard there was an opening for a team, I immediately jumped on the opportunity. Being able to play a sport that I find enjoyable and have it be competitive is awesome. When I started my own team this year, I envisioned our team holding up the 1st place trophy at the end of the season…. And then week 1 came.
- In your opinion who are the best players in the league?
Just to be clear, I have not seen everyone play in person. But so far I would say…
- Do you have any pre-game rituals?
On my way to the game each week I have to listen to the song “Eye of the Tiger” to put me in game mode. How can you go wrong with a little Rocky moment before each game?
- Do you think the league is more likely to have someone widely known for receiving an honorary doctoral degree OR being arrested for a drunken rant at a fast food restaurant?
Although I do not see either happening in the near future, I would definitively say the latter of the two options.
- When pitching are you more worried about hitting someone in the face or giving up a homerun?
Giving up a homerun for sure. In the event that I hit someone in the face, I expect someone to yell “Don’t rub it!” and then we move on.
- Which pitcher are you most excited and possibly worried to face?
Although I do not expect him to pitch to us (because he will be scared of losing), I would love to hit against Brian Rensch from the Kentucky Waterfalls. Rensch helped coach my high school baseball team, so I am hoping that the protégée will outduel the master.
