Louis Coleman

Royals Pitcher

                      

   

What advice do you have for an aspiring baseball player?

To have a lot of fun doing it.  If you are growing up and don't enjoy baseball it's going to be hard to enjoy it when you get older.
 

What is your career highlight so far?

Getting my 1st save in Yankees Stadium.  Also, when I got an at bat in Colarado in since I never get hit, it was an adrenaline rush.
 

What is the hardest pitch to master?

For me it is a Curveball because of my delivery.  It depends where the arm angle is and how hard you throw it.

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

I was a quarterback in high school, so I had a lot of football heroes like Brett Favre and Peyton Manning.  For baseball it was Ozzie Smith because he was a switch hitting shortstop and that is what I got to do when I was growing up.  I also liked how he did the flips when he went on the field.  I liked Nolan Ryan because he was tough as nails.

 

Who is the toughest batter you have faced?

Albert Pujols is a great hitter.  Peter Bourjos for the Angels, last time I pitched against him he ended up hitting a home run.  He may not be the toughest hitter for me but he definitely got me.

 

If you were not a baseball player what would you be?

I love Soccer, It would be cool to be a golfer but most of all a football player, I loved the contact and it was fun to play!

 

What is your favorite part about being a baseball player?

Doing stuff like this, We have 20,000 - 30,000 people coming to Royals games just to see us play.  Before the games we have little kids wanting autographs and they are the most special because they don't really know who you are they just want you to write on their ball.

 

What was your favorite subject in school? And why?

In high school it was recess and in college it was accounting because it was like a puzzle and it was fun trying to put it together!

 

What do you like to do in your free time?

Hunt, Fish and that's about it.  I love to be outside and I was always outside as a kid because my dad was a farmer.
