Player of the Week: Preston Felgate

07/05/2015 12:18 PM -

      Preston Felgate, Pitcher, is in his first year with the Mustangs. Felgate attended Shawnee Mission West in Lenexa. He went on to play college ball for the William Jewell Cardinals. At William Jewell, Preston earned three degrees in Business Administration, Spanish, and Critical Thought and Inquiry.

     Felgate came to the Mustangs because he had always heard wonderful things about the organization. “I’ve always heard great things about the team from the coaches, to the city, and even the atmostphere,” Felgate said “I just wanted to come somewhere where I can have fun, and play on a winning team.” While this is his first year with the team, Preston had hopes to play for the Mustangs last summer until an injury set him back a year. He had to undergo Tommy John surgery, so he was forced to wait out his rehab time before he could join the team for the 2015 season.

     Growing up, Felgate said that his family had the biggest influence on his baseball career. Especially his parents, who come to as many games as possible and always support him in any way they can and push him to go out and play his best.

     Outside of baseball, Preston enjoys living a relaxed lifestyle. “I like to spend my down time just relaxing with friends and family,” he said. Preston also loves to spend his time on the water fishing, or with his friends playing basketball. Although he hasn’t had much time for fishing or basketball this summer, Felgate definitely has time to play with a Rubik’s Cube, which he boasts he can complete in under a minute.

     So far Preston has reveled in his time with the Mustangs. “It’s really cool just being with the guys on and off the field,” he said. Felgate also noted the closeness of the team, saying how incredible the chemistry in the clubhouse is, especially since they all come from different schools and backgrounds. Moving forward, Felgate hopes to just keep throwing baseballs “as hard as he can, for as long as he can” and continue playing the game that he loves.
