This week, we're with representatives of the Essex Town Little League. The League has about 350 kids between the instructional, baseball and softball programs. The league has been very successful over the years producing multiple state baseball and softball champions during Allstar season. They had some successful questions for the Lake Monsters.
Luke, an 8 year old pitcher asks, "Do you ever get nervous when they try to strike you out?"
Brett Vertigan, Lake Monsters Outfielder: "It's a good question Luke. When I was younger, I used to get nervous, but the more comfortable you get hitting you start to make the pitchers more nervous than you."
Chris, a 9 year old catcher asks, "What is your favorite sports that's not baseball?"
Austin Booker, Lake Monsters Infielder: "Well Chris, I would have to say my favorite sport that's not baseball would probably be football. I'm a big football guy, because I just like watching it and it's fun to play."
Toby, an 8 year old pitcher asks, "What was your favorite Major league baseball team when you were young?"
Sam Roberts, Lake Monsters Infielder: "That's a good question Toby. My favorite Major League Baseball team was the Atlanta Braves. They came on every night on TBS and I was a loyal fan."
