Full Count with Trey Duffield

What is your major: I’m majoring in Sport Management and Business Finance.  I have the desire to work in global scale sponsorships to activate some of the largest sport contracts in the world

Who is your baseball hero? There are a few players that I like to watch; Mike Trout, he plays the game at the highest level the right way.  Glenn Otto is a friend who pitches for the Rangers and always takes time to be a great person even when he plays in the big leagues and Shohei Ohtani is a freak of nature.

Your favourite Major League Team: I’m a fan of the Houston Astros

Why play baseball and not another sport? It was the only sport that I had fun practicing. I knew it was the one that would give me the best future.

Any family in the game? Actually, my Grandfather played for the St Louis Browns before they become the Baltimore Orioles.

What drew you to the school you are attending: Rice University is in my hometown of Houston and I like getting the chance to play at home
