Questions From Quarantine: Sammy Dubin

Since everyone has a little bit more time on their hands these days, we wanted to check in with our guys and see what they are up to. Welcome to "Questions From Quarantine", where we chat with our youth and high school players to get a pulse on what their generation is doing during this new reality.

Meet Sammy Dubin. Sammy plays for Top Tier North. While he might be slightly undersized, but plays like his hair is on fire and always gets it done at the dish. As you will see, he has himself a sense of humor, too.

What's the worst part of social distancing and quarantine? 
The worst part of quarantine is not being able to interact with my teammates and play the game I love. Baseball has been such a constant force in my life and it is really tough feeling like an entire spring season is slipping away. Further, my high school team made a Cinderella run in last year's state playoffs, and we had built a lot of momentum coming into this spring. It would be devastating not getting to see our hard work pay off.

What's the best part of social distancing and quarantine? 
The best part of quarantine is that I finally have some freedom over my schedule. School becomes really draining during the late winter months and I didn't realize how stressed I was until we got this break. Mostly I've been using this time to get my mind and my body right before (hopefully) the upcoming summer season.

What are you worried about running out of the most? 
I'm most worried about running out of cereal. I live and die by cereal... I would eat it three meals a day if I could.

Insta, Snap, or Tik-Tok? Why? 
Insta. Snap is boring and I absolutely cannot stand Tik-Tok. Plus I can post my baseball highlights on Insta.

Which class are you most excited about being done with? 
Gym. I was in the swimming unit... worst 5 weeks of the school year.

If you could quarantine with anyone dead or alive who would it be? Choose 3.

College World Series. I'm going to need that college degree.

Droppin' bombs or throwin' ched?
