How challenging is being a two-way player, especially as a closer?
"I’ve kind of done that for my entire career. I’ve never really been a starting pitcher because I’ve always been an infielder or a catcher, but I’ll always be ready to go in and pitch when it gets to that situation in the game. It’s definitely challenging because of all the different things you need to do before the game and in the offseason, obviously, to make sure your body is in shape to be able to do both and stay healthy. I’m not going to lie, my arm will certainly get sore as it’s supposed to because it is a lot of stress. I’ve managed it pretty well so far, and it’s something I’ve done for my entire life. I’ve had a lot of experience trying to figure out what exactly I need to do to be able to do that, especially during the season."
Your path to Sacred Heart is quite different than most, as you played a season at Division 3 Suffolk University in Boston. What did you take away from that experience?
