Daniel Jennings

Miami Marlins

 

1.) What advice do you have for a aspiring baseball player?

The advice I would have for a aspiring young player is play as much as you can, and pitch as little as you can. This does two things, playing a lot gets you to know the game of baseball very well and it helps you learn situations to be comfortable. Pitching as little as possible helps save your arm and it keeps your arm healthy and allows you to pitch longer. 

 

2.) What is your career highlight so far?

It's hard to pick just one but winning state twice in high school was amazing, and of course getting to the big leagues is a dream come true. I can honestly say it's a new highlight right now with every ballpark I walk into because every single park is so big and so many fans come it's hard to believe.

 

3.) Who were your heroes growing up?

My heroes growing up were of course my parents who supported me through everything. Also, I'm not one to say famous people were my heroes but people around me that taught me stuff about baseball and life were my heroes. Those people are who I learned the most from.

 

4.) What was your favorite subject in school?

I was always good at math so I should say math, but I had this one history teacher in 8th grade who made each lesson into a story that he would tell during class. He would highlight names and dates in his stories, but it was always incredible each day.

 

5.) What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time I like to watch movies and TV shows, I also like to play Xbox & golf.

 

6.) What is the hardest pitch to master?

The hardest pitch to master is always the one that doesn't come easiest. Anyone can throw one pitch, if you can get a second pitch down then you've got something, if you can get a third then you are really well off. It's different for everyone but in general it's always the NEXT pitch to master.

 

7.) What is your favorite pitch?

I feel obligated to say a hard slider is my favorite because it's my pitch. If you have a good fastball and a good breaking ball everything else comes naturally.
