"In his draft class and when you're when you sign kids and it comes time to draft, it's that whole balance between. Okay. What's their number? Where are they gonNA. Sign to pass up on college. So we were getting a little bit of a vibe that tort was lowering his number at a high school and I can remember saying this is i. met him at his mother one time in recruiting. I can remember saying. We've talked about it on that you. I'm sure you guys will bring this up later, but I was like screw that dude man, we don't. If he's GonNa lower his number and wants to do that. We don't. We've got right handed power. Yeah Not like that, we'll thank God. Because I remember I told Ben Greenspan crude I said, make hell with him like if he wants to do that and lower is number and let him and I told that data. So. All that happened. So he shows up in the fall. Thank goodness has a very modest fall towards the end of the fall. It's things started to click with him in terms of hitting balls that. Now. The closest thing I probably had to him, you know and was that was short. You know, and I had Alex Dickerson at some really good hitters, but it was just different as one of those things where you're like I, don't I don't see longtime. And then he comes out his freshman year and he's hitting home runs like crazy and effortlessly, it wasn't the poll side stuff stop that was going right center and whatever it was at prize freshman year when you're you late as freshmen. Fall early spring where you're like, wow, and then I, started the share that story with people told you about how stupid I am. Been I was, and but we just because we were named at that time when he recruited that was not a wasn't the normal traditional because his whole thing was, he's like I wanted to go to Arizona state as on calm. So he he saw value being here and he probably truthfully would have come here whether our staff was there. Not as he wanted to go, the best place can go for him. But the rest is history you know and I bumped for him. You know he was going to shatter the home run record here and You know he's like three off or something like that two or three off. So. and. I. Know that that's not important to him. But you know it's to be able to say got at record. Arizona State is pretty cool. That's a nice hat. Couple of you're talking about a guy, who said I? Mean because he he crushes berries fresh. And and and he joins Bob Horner as the only as you player to pop twenty back to back years. So I mean the kid was laying out a very nice. A very nice road for himself back construction thing. So we took the job if you've been in. Muny. Defenses were. Four. I can't remember they were. But when a God here I'm like the way we're going to recruit and the way that I recruited previous institutions. HIT WE'RE GONNA get physical guys are GonNa, hit longer fly balls in your guys so that. He played in that stadium when it was deep and I'm telling you had. He played in a normal park, he would have shattered horner's if he played at Packard. You would've done I hate the would've should've could've but I mean, he would have crushed that record even with he would have done it two years But so then we moved the fences in. The sophomore year. We lead the country, we lead the country in home runs, and then again I didn't move minute. Ridiculous. We've moved to mid the normal. And then we lead the country and home runs, and then he backed up with the year again, but he would have had honestly would have thirty, thirty, five freshman year headed been a normal part and it's Yeah I mean, I. I've obviously spent some time watching his highlight reel on youtube in like he doesn't hit very many cheapies. There was no homerun that I saw. That was like, is it GonNa get out off the bat. You Kinda knew wizard game that comes to mind for you where he hit one where you were just like I can't believe how far that ball just went. There's too. So we're at Long Beach State and I play that brought teams Long Beach State prior to Arizona, state and at sea mist comes in the ball gets really heavy in games. It's a it's going nowhere. You can't get it out of there. We're playing. This was freshman year I. Think we're playing there and he hit a ball to left field just disappeared on the golf course. So. Again, it's one of those nights and we always hit a home run. It just hit a home run I mean, this thing was. When I say disappeared literally disappeared and then we were Where's the one? Oh. Fullerton this year, night game, every air, every normal human beings hitting crushing in the ball guy will catch at the warning track. He hit another Paul cleared the scoreboard cleared the light towers everything and disappeared. It's funny. If you watch that clip announcer said something about I've ever it disappearing but those balls. That's not a normal human beings. Yeah. It's those. It's just not is. There is the reasons you buy here when I asked this question or is Orc the the most physical and I I always ask is he man amongst boys example that you have that you talk out in the future? Is there somebody from the past that you saw sort of? Ridiculous, feats on a baseball field as well. Remember anybody from the past and so so if you guys spent time, we talked to him before now. You'RE GONNA. Love it. You'RE GONNA. Love it. Because is he turns into a beast on the field, but he's the nicest human being on the planet it humble, and that's right. Think makes him truly. Special, because the talent is offer chart, but yet you talk to him, you're GonNa be like that's the nicest guy ever talked to. But. The same thing. The other guy was similar to that I've said was Schwartz Schwartz, did. Some crazy I was called. Swab risk type things. Swap was motivated by food. Like. When we travel when we eat I'd say his lifetime like, okay, we're gonNA, stop it. Now, we're not having dessert because it wasn't a budget I'm like, Hey, schmerber can do this like hit over the second finance the despite. Not just a home run fence for the Schwimmer, could do that. We'll get dessert tonight for dinner. would be like. All right. You know? So, but he was done was close to. He was close to that Alex dickerson. WHO's with the giants? He, hit a ball, an ill metrodome that. Hit. The last row of this, the seats at the top of the ceiling that. Yeah Yeah, and they actually have seats in were big layers of hit like.
