Uncommitted Spotlight: Zigmond Looking To 'Catch' More Interest

John Zigmond C / SS / Moeller, OH / 2020

CINCINNATI - When John Zigmond first began playing baseball, he liked the idea of being a catcher. After all his father, Erin, played the position in college at Wright State.

Now Zigmond is hoping to follow in those footsteps as the recruiting process starts to pick up for the Moeller sophomore.

“When I first started I wanted to be a catcher,” Zigmond related. “I caught in Little League, but then for a few years I played shortstop when I didn’t want anything to do with catching. But around 12U, I started getting serious about it again. I would listen to my dad say you can do this, and then it started happening.”

The fatherly advice continued.

“One hundred percent my dad is my biggest influence,” Zigmond said. “He’s always been there for me. In Little League was my coach in those days. He was always with me in travel ball and still coaches me up. After every game for 30 minutes we talk strictly baseball about what he saw that I did well. He’s taught me everything I know.”
