The repeat State Champs from South Burlington dropped their first game at the regional round of the Little League World Series, but rebounded with two strong wins. The guys made it to the semifinals, where they dropped a hard fought contest against Rhode Island.
Ryan, a 13 years old pitcher asks, "Who is the fastest pitcher you ever faced and when?"
Ryon Healy, Lake Monsters Third Baseman: "Thanks for the question Ryan. I think the two fastest pitcher I've ever faced is Kevin Gossman who pitched at LSU and is now with the Orioles and also Garrett Cole who pitched at UCLA and is now up with the Pittsburgh Pirates so both have been clocked over 100 miles an hour so I think by far those are the two fastest pitchers I've ever faced."
Greg, a 13 year old left fielder asks, "How much Gatorade do you go through in a game?"
Toshi Nagahara, Lake Monsters Trainer: "Hey Greg thanks for the question. I would say 6 to 9 gallons of Gatorade a game. Especially in these hot evenings it's more 8 to 9 gallons. It's hot, they're thirsty, so we drink."
Nick a 13 years old catcher asks, "What do you do on the bus during road trips?"
Tyler Marincov, Lake Monsters Outfielder: "Well Nick, it can get pretty crazy or it can be pretty relaxed depending on how you look at it. Some guys like to play games. I like to personally put my headphones in, go to sleep as long as I can to pass the time. However you want to do it."
