Wingspan’s featured athlete for 3/28 is varsity baseball player, sophomore Nick Smith.

Wingspan: When and why did you start playing baseball?

Smith:”I started playing baseball at the age of 5 and I started playing because I wanted to try out different sports, and when I played baseball I quickly realized that it was the sport for me.”

Wingspan: What is the most challenging part of playing baseball?

Smith: “The most challenging part of baseball is without a doubt the mental side of the game. At times it can put your confidence to the test and it can be tough to come back from a mistake. If you don’t stay strong mentally, it can affect how you play.”

Wingspan: What is your favorite part about playing baseball?

Smith: “My favorite part about baseball is the bonds and friendships you make. Being comfortable around your team is very important in having a well rounded team. And I am so lucky to have that on this team.”

Wingspan: How has playing baseball impacted you as a person?

Smith: “Baseball has made me stronger mentally and physically. But most importantly, it has shown me to take absolutely nothing for granted because things can change very fast.”

Wingspan: Who is your biggest inspiration?

Smith: “My biggest inspiration is my dad, he is the one that has pushed me every day to get better and has always been my #1 fan.”

Wingspan: What do you hope to achieve this season?

Smith: “Personally, I would like to contribute to team success whether that be on the mound or hitting.”

Wingspan: Do you plan on continuing playing baseball after graduating high school?

Smith: “Yes, I do plan on playing baseball at the collegiate level. I don’t know where yet but I would like to see how far baseball can take me.”
