Phil Mosey is an infielder and catcher for the Irish baseball team. I spoke with the Fishers, Ind. native about his interests both on and off the diamond.
Q: Who was your favorite baseball player as a kid?
A: Derek Jeter, for sure.
Q: What player do you model your game after?
A: I’m a pretty big Chipper Jones fan. I try to model his old-school style of play.
Q: Who is your favorite pro team?
A: The [New York] Yankees.
Q: Do you have a pregame ritual?
A: Yeah. I just eat as many egg sandwiches and PB&J’s that I can. I try to carbo-load.
Q: Do you have a batting box ritual?
A: Yeah, I basically get in and out of the box pretty much the same way every time.
Q: What is your favorite moment of your baseball career so far?
A: I guess any time we sweep a series in BIG EAST conference play is a highlight for me.
Q: Is it easier to hit a 90 mph fastball or a wiffleball curveball?
A: Definitely a 90 mph fastball.
Q: Do you have any hobbies off the field?
A: Larping, for sure. (Live-Action Role-Playing is an activity where participants act out characters’ actions from role-playing games).
Q: What is your major and a favorite class?
A: My major is FTT (Film, Television, and Theatre), and my favorite class is Video Games and Gender Roles.
Q: What is your favorite spot on campus?
A: My favorite spot on campus is probably my futon.
Q: What is the best nickname on the team and who has it?
A: The best nickname on the team is “The Cinnamon Dragon.” That would be Forrest Johnson.
Q: Do you have a nickname?
A: People call me “Get Philly” or “Brosey” sometimes.
Q: What is your favorite phrase from one of the coaches?
A: Coach Cheek, our strength and conditioning coach, says “If you want to be strong, pick up heavy things often.”
