Mitchell Rowe

Baseball has been a constant in Mitchell Rowe’s, junior, life since he was young. While it started as a point of connection with his dad, it soon became a passion he carried into high school. 

“My dad got me into [baseball] so it was always just kind of part of my life,” Rowe said. 

Last year, Rowe was a swinger for the state championship team and hopes to contribute to a second championship this season. As a shortstop and catcher, Rowe‘s ability to play either position makes him a versatile player, which he hopes can be an advantage going forward. 

“[We want] to win another state championship this year,” Rowe said. “We won [last year] and we’re just looking to go back-to-back. We’re like a big family [and] we practice almost every day. Spending every day with [each other] is really important.”

Going into the season, the team has been practicing six days a week, allowing them to bond and prepare for the challenges they face this year. Out of all the teams in the league, Jesuit is one of the most daunting to Rowe.

“Jesuit [is] a very, very talented team,” Rowe said. “We match up pretty equally so that’s probably gonna be our biggest competition.”

With the wide range of players on the team, Rowe feels confident in their ability to make an impact this year and achieve back-to-back championships.

“We have a really talented pitching staff this year,” Rowe said. “I think our pitchers will get it done. And then, obviously, we have some of the most talented hitters in the state.”
