This week, Meet The Monsters visits St. Albans with the Vermont state champion St. Albans softball all-stars. These 9 and 10-year-olds always believed in each other no matter the inning or score of the game. There was no need to coach the young ladies on how to appreciate and love the game. It showed on the field and in their questions to the Lake Monsters.
Emily, a 10-year-old center fielder asks, "Do you have a special routine that you do before a game?"
Lake Monsters infielder Trent Gilbert answers, "I don't really have a set pregame routine, but I'm a little superstitious in the way that if I have a good game, I like to kind of do the same thing before the next game. Put on your uniform the same way. That's kind of my pregame routine."
Kaylie, a 10-year-old left fielder asks, "Has your little league team ever make it to regionals and how did you do?"
Lake Monsters infielder Jose Brizuela answers, "When I was younger, 12 years old, my team and I won Cooperstown. So, I thought that was pretty cool. It was a great experience and I got to play against some great ballplayers."
Bree, a 10-year-old catcher, asks, "What's your best technique for throwing a runner out at second?"
Lake Monsters catcher Jose Chavez answers, "My best technique would be try to have the ball go deep to you and be quick with your hands and quick with your feet and try to throw to the chest of the fielder."
