Question of the week

Question of the Week: Major League Baseball season is here! Which team or teams are you pulling for, and who are your favorite players?

April 9, 2014 

Taylor Menezes, senior, Central Catholic High School

Baseball season has always been one of the many things I love about spring, and I’ve been a San Francisco Giants fan since I was old enough to sit on my papa’s lap in his recliner and watch the game. Some of my favorite players are Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval, Brandon Belt, Matt Cain and Melky Cabrera.

Julie Fogarty, junior, Central Catholic High School

I am a big A’s fan, so anybody in an A’s jersey is good by me, but I’d probably have to call Coco Crisp my favorite player. I’m really excited that baseball has started and I know Oakland will go all the way. Go A’s!

Dominique Germann, freshman, Modesto Junior College

Madison Miguel for the Dawgs, of course!

Gabriella Germann, sophomore, Central Valley High School

I like baseball, but I never watch it on TV for some reason (maybe I don’t have the right channels or something). For this reason, I never really developed a following for it.

Anna Fogarty, senior, Central Catholic High School

I am not really a fan of baseball. I find the culture behind the sport interesting, but I have no interest in actually watching the games. I didn’t even realize the season had started until I saw it online.
