By Jeff Markle

Prep Baseball Report Colorado is getting ready for the start of the high school spring baseball season with the Preseason All State event on February 22nd at Slammers South.  Over the course of this final week we will showcase several of the participants at this year's event.  Continuing our look is Zane Phelps, 2016, 6-foot-3, 195 pound, 3B/C from Bayfield High School.

PBR:  Describe yourself as a baseball player to those who have never seen you play:

Phelps:  I am a leader and a motivator. I know the game very well and am very comfortable in all types of situations. 

PBR:  What would be your dream school to play baseball at?  If you have already committed to play at the next level, why did you choose that particular school?

Phelps:   My dream college to play at would be Oregon University. I would love to play at Oregon because I feel I would be a great fit for their competition level. 

PBR:  What are your best assets on and off the field at this point in your high school career?

Phelps:  My best assets on the field are my leadership skills and my ability to recognize a situation. My best asset off of the field is to set the example of what athletes should act like in their community.

PBR:  What does your off-season preparation look like this year compared to you freshman year?

Phelps:  A lot more time in the weight room and a lot more time with a ball in my hand.

PBR:  What is the best baseball advice you have received and try to follow to this point in your career?

Phelps:  When you're in a slump sit back and hit to the right side      

PBR:  What are your superstitions or routines that go on during a season?

Phelps:  My first ten pitches of BP I work away but that's about it.

PBR:  What are your goals for: 

This Season: Make the final four in school ball and get 1st team all state and compete in the Connie Mack World Series in the summer.  

Two Years: To be committed to a college and compete for another state title. 

Four Years: Be successful at whatever school I end up at.
