Best Part Of Playing Amateur Baseball: Staying young and playing ball with the best teammates a guy can ask for! And, of course, St. Stephen.

Which Team is Our Biggest Rival? Whichever team we happen to be playing next. But, I have heard we don't get along with Sleepy Eye very well.

Who is the slowest player on the team? I've been seeing my name get thrown around for this one quite a bit, which I find odd after a quick look at last year's stats. I finished 5th on the team last year in SBs and am the only one on the team with at least three stolen base attempts to finish with a 100 percent success rating. So because it obviously isn't me, I'm going to have to go with my pal Nocky, mainly because I don't think I have ever actually seen him run.

Wood Bat or Composite Bat? wood bat

Day Game or Night Game? Day baseball games followed by night football and Hammerschlagen games at St. Stephen sounds like a pretty ideal day.

Favorite Baseball Movie: Too many to choose one, but you can't go wrong with Sandlot.

One More Thing... Let's play hard, have fun, and get back to the State Tournament.
