Trevor Bauer Extensive Interview Includes Being Sued For Throwing Baseballs

Trevor Bauer. At this point I feel like there's not much more I can say about the kid. He's carrying the hopes of an entire nation (!) on his shoulders and yet he continues to carry himself with such poise and determination.

Our good friends at Arizona Diamondbacks blog AZ Snake Pit graciously and stupendously shared the transcripts of an entire 30-minute interview with The Kid. The interview itself was provided by the fine folks at the Visalia Rawhide where Bauer is now getting his first tastes of pro ball.

It's a fantastic interview that goes in all sorts of great places, including this story from Bauer how he got sued for throwing baseballs in the park.

A Half-Hour With Bauer: D-backs Prospect Trevor Bauer Speaks - AZ Snake Pit
TB: Well, there was a tennis court, and it had a 20-foot high fence, and then there's a big open grass area, where I would launch balls across. I started throwing up there when I was ten, and didn't have any problems until I was 15 or 16. The park employed an instructor to give tennis lessons through Parks and Rec. I think the statement was that the unexpected repetitiveness of the balls hitting the fence was disturbing his tennis classes so then I got suits filed on me for vandalism, disturbing the peace, reckless endangerment - all sorts of fun!

I highly recommend reading the full interview with The Kid.
