Cole Hamels

MLB - Pitcher

                      

   

What advice do you have for an aspiring baseball player?

Never give up on the game.  It is a game of failures.  In order to succeed, you must learn from your failures and do the best that you can.  You also have to enjoy every moment you get in playing baseball.

 

What is your favorite part about being a baseball player?

I actually get to play the game of baseball, which I have enjoyed since I was very young, and I get to do this as an adult.  I get to travel all over the country and meet people from all over the world.  I really like seeing kids smiling and people enjoying watching us play this great game.

 

What is your career highlight so far?

Pitching in my first major league game.  I had always dreamed about playing in the big leagues.  This memory will always be imprinted in my mind.

 

Who is the toughest batter you have ever faced?

Derek Jeter is probably the toughest batter I have faced..  He is really good in the post-season.  He is a great hitter and a really nice guy.

 

What is the toughest pitch to master?

The toughest pitch to master is Strike 1.  Actually, it would be a fastball.  You have to pinpoint it.  If you can't do that, you won't last very long.  Guys should master the fastball before even attempting other pitches..

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

My heroes were my parents.  Also, the founding fathers of our country.  They wrote the Declaration of Independence and fought for our country so that we were free. 

 

What was your favorite subject in school and why?

History.  I love learning about history.  It was a fun subject and I like learning about it even today.  It was cool learning how history repeats itself.

 

What is your favorite website and why?

Google.  I can use it to look up anything I need to know at any given moment..

 

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like to read, play golf, and travel.  My handicap is not too good right now, maybe a 16.  My best handicap was a 6, but that was a while ago.  I don't play enough.
