Trey Ball

Trey Ball leads the 2013 American Family Insurance ALL-USA Baseball Team

PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Trey Ball, LHP-OF
New Castle, Ind.
Ht.:
6-5.Wt.: 175.
Bats: Left. Throws: Left.

College/major league draft (round): Texas/Boston Red Sox, No. 7 overall (first round; signed).

Key stats: Went 6-0 with a 0.76 earned run average and 93 strikeouts in 46 innings. Also hit .329 with 10 homers, 41 runs, 29 RBI and 21 steals.

Wood bat: The past two summers, we used wood bats in every tournament. I figured this year, I could hit with wood during the high school season to show I can hit with wood(since he could be a pitcher or position player as a pro). I felt like it worked out. I only broke one bat all season. I think there was maybe one homer I would have had with metal that I didn’t get because I was hitting a wood bat.

Season highlight: Winning the North Central Conference championship. It was the first time we won it outright. We also set a new record for wins (22). This town (home of Steve Alford) is known for basketball, so it was nice to put baseball on the map.

Favorite video game: Usually in the offseason, I’m a Call of Duty guy. During the season, I stay away from video games.

Listening to: I’ll listen to a variety of things to get the blood flowing.

Embarrassing moment: Last summer, in the Perfect Game All-American Classic, I was in left field and a ball came to me. I was thinking about the throw home and the ball skipped when I went to field it and it went beside my glove. It was on national TV and everything, but fortunately because of the three-hour time difference, not a lot of people here saw it.
