Ben Gerl is a senior pitcher on the Lincoln-Way West baseball team.

How long have you played baseball and how did you first get started?

I picked up a bat before I could actually stand. I would sit up, my parents would toss me a ball, and I would swing my little plastic bat. But I first started for real when I was 3 or 4 years old.

What made you get into baseball?
