Week 17: Connor Cino, Varsity Baseball

How has baseball shaped your life?

“First, it’s shaped my life schedule-wise; you have baseball all the time and you’re constantly working on that- constantly trying to get better so it teaches you a lot of goals. Baseball is a sport of failure, so it helps you learn to turn the page; there is going to be good days and bad days. It teaches you so many life lessons along the way and really just how to be a good person”.

Why do you play baseball?

“I play baseball because it’s something I just love to do; it’s something I’ve always loved to do. I mean he makes me happy and makes your day. It just gives you something to look forward to in the future- to try and make something out of it”.

How’s the season going so far?

“The season is going okay; it could be going better, but overall it is going pretty well. We are working off what we lost last year and we are doing better than we were expected to do but I still feel like there is more improvement that can be made. I feel I’m contributing really well this year and have stepped up to do what I needed to do as a Junior on the team”.

What’s your favorite memory regarding baseball?

“When I was twelve years old, we won the state championship in New Jersey and I hit a walk-off home run at the District Championship game against our rival team. That is something I will never forget”.
