Today's Spotlight: Jayme Lovelace

July 2nd, 2014 Meet the Mustang is Jayme Lovelace


Chris Roush: Looking back, what is the first memory of baseball you have?

Jayme Lovelace: Really, just going to game and watching my cousin play. Also, being able to play with my dad and spending time with him basically got me into it.

CR: When you started playing baseball, was it tee-ball or what was the first type of baseball you played?

JL: I played tee-ball, but I never took it very seriously, until I started getting older and better. I started to realize that I could be pretty good.

CR: What kind of mentor was your dad while you were growing up?

JL: Oh, just always being around the sport. He was my coach growing up until I got into high school. We were constantly playing baseball and watching baseball and just constantly learning from him. I wouldn’t be here without him.

CR: Now, did you play other sports growing up?

JL: I played basketball a lot and I played football a little bit, but mostly it was just baseball and basketball.

CR: When did you decide that baseball was going to be your main sport?

JL: After my freshman year, basketball wasn’t allowing me to do what I need to do in the summer for baseball.

CR: This Mustangs team seems very relaxed and seems like you guys are always having fun. Does that make the transition easier for you?

JL: Yeah, right now, it’s summer ball. It’s a fun experience. We want to play so we can get to the playoffs, but at school if you make an error, you’re done playing. There is so much pressure. It almost feels like a job during the year.

CR: Does Matt Johnson make this experience an easy transition for you guys during the summer?

JL: Oh yeah, he’s laid back and allows us to work with position coaches and improve with them. It comes down to us working on what we need to and then going out and doing it.

CR: What has your experience been like with the Mustangs this summer?

JL: It’s been a great experience. I’ve been able to know the guys and having the support of all the fans, it’s just been great. It’s really awesome to come out here and play in front of three or four thousand fans on a weekend.
