Rosie is 9 years old and plays third base: How may practices do you have in a week?
Rick Magnante, Lake Monsters Manager: Well Rosie, that's a simple question to answer. We practice everyday before we play our games, so we're always working on our individual skills and our team fundamentals to prepare us to play every night.
Regan is an 8 year old outfielder: Is it nerve wracking before a game?
Christopher Bostick, Lake Monsters Shortstop: Hey Regan, it doesn't really get too nerve wracking before a game. A lot of the guys are kind of light spirited. You get the music and everything and you're hitting batting practice and everything and everyone kind of jokes around and has fun. You do it everyday, so you kind of learn ways to have fun and be as loose before the game as you possibly can.
Fiona is a 10 year old right fielder: What goes through your mind before the pitchers throws the ball and you're out in the field?
Jacob Tanis, Lake Monsters Infielder: Fiona, thanks for the question. That's a great one. I usually try to clear my head and focus on the pitcher. As he's in the wind-up delivering to the plate I want to take a good step towards the batter, set my feet and get ready for the pitch to enter the zone and be ready for the ball and you always want to expect the ball to come to you every pitch.
