Before last night’s game, I had the pleasure of sitting down and talking with Geneva Red Wings infielder, Brady Slinger. My first impression of him was that he was very tall, standing 6 feet 3 inches. He took some time before warm-ups to speak to me and answer some questions.
Brady was born in Chicago, Illinois but has spent most of his life in Nashville, Tennessee. I asked him what drew him to the sport of baseball and he said that his brother and father both played in high school and college, so it was a natural choice for him. At this point of the season, Brady is one of Geneva’s hottest hitters. He is currently a senior at Hamilton college and when I asked him where he saw himself in 10 years, surprisingly Brady said that he would probably be a chemist. He is applying to graduate school and majoring in Chemistry.
Then I decided to lighten the mood with a couple of random questions. I asked him what his favorite genre of music was, and despite being from the country music capital of the world, he enjoys rock music most often. He then added that he enjoys sci-fi movies. This is just the first of many interviews I intend to conduct during the course of the season, and I would like to thank Brady for taking some time to talk with me.
