Mitch Young | Baseball

How long have you been playing baseball for?  “I have been playing since as long as I can remember.” 

What has been your biggest accomplishment from this season or a past season?  “Starting junior year, it was a lot of fun.” 

Do you have any personal goals for this season? “I want to bat 400.” 

What is your favorite position to play? “Second base because that is where I have always played and you have a lot of room to make a play.” 

Have you faced any injuries or struggles?  “I have never been injured, but there have been times where I have been struggling so I do superstitious things like put my batting gloves in the microwave to warm them up if I am in a cold streak during the season. It is more of a mindset thing than a physical thing.” 

What has been your favorite memory? “My favorite memory would be my sophomore year when we got to stay in a hotel for a tournament and when our team went to the college world series.”
