Inside the Recruitment: '15 1B Seth Hubbard commits to Concordia



Seth Hubbard, 1B, Plymouth HS, Class of 2015

PBR: Why did you choose Concordia?

Hubbard: I chose Concordia because I really loved the campus and the academic opportunities that would be available with the smaller, more personalized class sizes. 

PBR: What other schools were you considering?

Hubbard: I was also considering attending Wayne State, Oakland, and Central Michigan.

PBR: Where did the coaches first see you? How did your relationship develop with the coaching staff?

Hubbard: I first met the coaches when I took a visit to Concordia. Then they got to see me play more at a PBR showcase. They were fantastic throughout the whole recruiting process and I couldn't be more excited to be able to play for them next year. 

PBR: What role do the coaches expect you to play your first year on campus?

Hubbard: I'm planning on going in there and working hard to help a program win baseball games. 

PBR: What summer team do you play on and how has travel baseball helped your development as a player?

Hubbard: I've been playing for the Great Lakes Cardinals (formerly the Canton Cardinals) ever since I was 8 years old. Travel baseball really helped me because we got to play at the highest level against the best competition. 

PBR: Who has had the biggest impact on you as a baseball player?

Hubbard: My travel coach, Dan Hejka. Told me the most important thing is to first be a good person, than a good student, than a good baseball player. 

PBR: What were your stats last spring?

Hubbard: For Plymouth we went 25-13, with a 14-2 division record as we took home a Division Championship. 

PBR: Who is the toughest pitcher that you have faced in Michigan?

Hubbard: I faced a lot of good pitching. The best were probably the guys I was playing defense for. Grant Hartwig, Cameron Stella, Tyler Thorington, and Brendan Wetmore.
