What is your favorite thing to do that does not involve sports?

I like to watch “One Tree Hill.” Jamie is a beast!

What is your favorite class in school?

History Through Films with Rebecca Frick

Who is your all-time favorite baseball player?

Shohei Ohtani because he throws gas and hits bombs.

If you could be an Olympic athlete in any sport except baseball, which sport would you like to compete in?

Golf. I need to get rid of my slice.

Who will win the World Series this year?

Fernando Tatis and Slam Diego will win it all this year.

What school besides your own has the best mascot?

The best mascot is obviously the Orab.

What is your favorite baseball-related movie?

Either “Major League” or “42.” Both are great.

Do you have any superstitions or rituals you go through before or during baseball games?

Gotta take a little nap, go to Subway, wear the same broken hair tie on my wrist and go to the bathroom right before the game.

If you could play baseball in any stadium in America, which would you choose?

Definitely Coors Field because you can throw harder and hit bombs there.

If you could drive any kind of vehicle, what would you choose?

The Batmobile. That thing is quick and pretty durable.

Who is your biggest role model and why?

Jesus, because he’s Jesus and he’s a perfect role model, literally.

What is a skill you wish you had but do not?

I wish I was ambidextrous. Good lefties in baseball have it way easier.
