Today's Spotlight: Nick Sebastian

07/08/2014 2:17 PM -

 July 8th, 2014 Meet the Mustang is Nick Sebastian


Chris Roush:  What is the first memory you have of playing baseball?

Nick Sebastian: I remember playing tee ball and my dad being the coach. My dad was always my coach and he played in college as well. He influenced me to keep playing and that’s what my first memory is, just the fact that my dad always supports me.

CR: So did your dad guide you towards playing baseball?

NS: Yeah I think so. He pushed me towards playing it. I did play hockey growing up too, but he kind of let me do whatever I want and baseball was the sport I chose.

CR: You mentioned you played hockey growing up and being from Rhode Island, was hockey a big sport for you growing up?

NS: Oh yeah, huge sport. I’m from a pretty big family and have about 20 cousins on one side and a lot of them played hockey. I was fortunate enough to be able to play on the same team as some of them and it was a family thing. I played all the way up until my freshman year of high school.

CR: How did baseball come out as the favorite sport even though hockey was a big family sport?

NS: Well I went to a small private school in Rhode Island and I played football, hockey and baseball. I transferred to a boarding school in Florida my sophomore year. I had to choose one sport and it was baseball and I devoted all my time to it.

CR: Moving from Rhode Island to Florida had to be a culture shock, right?

NS: Yeah it was, but the school in Florida had kids from all around the country and we all had to adjust to each other which made it easier.

CR: Being from the eastern part of the U.S., what’s it been like playing here in St. Joseph for the Mustangs?

NS: Oh it’s a great team; everybody is extremely laid back, but competitive at the same time. It’s a great group of guys and it’s an awesome experience. You get your work in and push each other to make yourself better and make the team better as well.

CR: What’s it been like being able to live your dream of playing baseball?

NS: It’s just an absolute wonderful experience and being around guys that are goal oriented and trying to make ourselves better. If everything works out, hopefully I’ll play at the next level.
