Q+A with Terrace’s own pitcher Andrew Woeck

Q%2BA+with+Terrace%E2%80%99s+own+pitcher+Andrew+Woeck

Andrew Woeck has had an outstanding year for the Men’s Baseball Team, which is now one win away from a berth in the state playoffs.  They play on Tuesday, April 25th, 2010, against Marysville-Pilchuck at MTHS.  Despite the team’s busy schedule, I had the opportunity to sit down with Woeck and ask him a variety of questions.

Q: First off, how many years have you been playing baseball?

A: Since I was five.  I’m 18 now, so 13 years.

Q: What is the best aspect of your game?

A: I’m extremely competitive.

Q: You’ve piled up many strikeouts this year, how have you been able to do that?

A: I try to mix up my pitches and change things up.  I throw hard but throwing hard isn’t always enough.

Q: As a captain, how do you think your leadership has impacted the team?

A: We’re a young team… Me and our other co-captain Chris [Raunio] have kept the team working hard.

Q: How did you prepare in the offseason for this spring?

A: I don’t really have an offseason because I play year-round.  But I’ve been in the weight room, getting my arm stronger.

Q: Any plans for baseball beyond high school?

A: I’ve gotten lots of offers.  There’s a possibility of getting drafted …For sure though, I’ll be going to Western Nevada.

Q: What interests do you have outside of baseball?

A: I love playing basketball, football, lots of other sports, and fishing.

Q: Who is your favorite baseball player, and who do you try to emulate?

A: Favorite baseball player would be [Los Angeles Angels outfielder] Vladimir Guerrero.  He’s a hard worker.  But because I’m a pitcher, I try to play like [San Francisco Giants pitcher] Tim Lincecum.
