Mike Schooler

Former Baseball Player

                      

   

What advice do you have for an aspiring baseball player?

Work hard, not only on your weaknesses, but on your strengths.  Improving both will make you a better player. 

 

What is your career highlight so far?

Definitely competing on the World Championship team last fall. When you are able to compete for gold medals and represent your country on such a grand stage it's an amazing accomplishment.

 

What has changed in the MLB since you played?

The main thing that I see is the technology. I really don't think that these pitchers are throwing any harder, but the radar guns are more sophisticated. This makes the mph readings higher.  Also, the money that they make is definitely different and I think that this alienates the players from the real world.

 

What is your career highlight?

I really don't have one specific highlight.  If I had to pick one it would be my first save against the Minnesota Twins in my second big league appearance.

 

Who is the toughest batter you ever pitched against?

Wally Joyner of the Angels was pretty tough on me.  Even though I was very successful against them as a team, it seemed that I just couldn't get him out.

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

Jim Fregosi was my favorite position player and Nolan Ryan was my favorite pitcher. I was very excited when I got to play with him my last year in the Majors with Texas Rangers.
