Sprechen Sie Baseball? | Senior to Play in Germany

Aaron Leming ‘14 was selected to represent the United States in a series of international baseball games versus teams from Germany and The Netherlands this summer. He will spend two weeks in Germany and Holland playing baseball and attending several baseball and college athletics seminars.

Aaron will be joining players from across the country. He is the only representative from Indiana. He will leave Indianapolis on June 22nd to meet the team in New York before flying to Germany, where the exhibition games will begin. Leming said he is looking forward to the competition and the unique setting, “usually the major league teams are good over there, so it will be interesting to see the players at this level and play them in new, multi-million dollar complexes.”

It will be the first time Aaron has travelled to Europe, but he knows that sight-seeing will take a backseat to baseball. And that will be easy for him, considering that baseball has been a passion for Aaron from a very young age. “I have been playing travel baseball since I was eight, but I began T-ball around four,” said Leming.

“Playing baseball” has meant training for it too. Leming has spent most off-seasons at indoor complexes working on pitching and hitting, doing agilities, and getting instruction to perfect his skills. The work has paid off. Aaron will be playing for Franklin College next year—a long-time dream of his. “I always wanted to play a college sport. Baseball has always seemed to be my best chance at doing that. I’m really looking forward to it, and I hope to be in the rotation as a freshman,” said Leming.

Of course, Aaron’s focus is on the next pitch. After pitching a big win versus Cathedral High School earlier this season, he is confindent about the upcoming state tournament that begins on May 28. The championship game would be on June 21—the day before he leaves for Germany. Aaron would like nothing more than to make that changeup. “It would be pretty cool to go all the way to the State Final and then get on a plane for Germany the next day. I can sleep on the plane. The real test would be after the exhibition in Germany. Then I’m back on a plane home and off to Michigan for a traveling tourney. It’s never ending baseball!”

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make
your point. You obviously know what youre talking
about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your
site when you could be giving us something informative
to read?

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup?

I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there
that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions?

First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!
