Interview with Marian Catcher Sean Meyer

Gus Walker

Where are you originally from, and what are you majoring in?

I am from Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. I majored in Sports and Recreation Management and now am getting a masters in K-8 Education.

What made you decide to attend Marian?

I chose Marian for two main reasons. The first was the small class sizes. I knew that if my professors were able to know my name, they would be able to hold me accountable for getting everything done that I needed to. The second reason was how tight-nit the baseball team seemed from the outside. Coach Bryan Burgert stressed the family aspect, it sounded like a great thing to become a part of, and I was not wrong there.

What has been your favorite part of the baseball family here at Marian?

My favorite part of the baseball family is that I genuinely feel comfortable with every person on the team and know that if I ever need anything, I can ask any one of them. I hope that they all know that they can come to me for anything, and I will do everything I can to help them.

Over the weekend, Marian baseball played St. Norbert in a conference double-header. During the first game, Senior Sean Meyer broke the all-time hits record at Marian. An amazing milestone, cementing Meyer’s name as one of the best Sabres ever.

How did you feel after your record-breaking hit?

Getting the record-breaking hit felt great. I am not big on having a lot of attention to myself, so I kind of wanted the game to keep going, but it was great to see all of my hard work pay off. Looking back over all of the hits, I am glad that I was able to get some in big situations and help the team more than anything. The milestone will stay with me forever, but the team will always be first.

What is your pre-game routine?

I really enjoy sitting on the couch in Lenz (Field House) before games and drinking an energy drink. I have a very laid-back approach, so this keeps me in a calm state.

Do you have any superstitions?

I don’t have any superstitions, but I do have a couple of things I really enjoy doing. I really love listening to Kings of Summer by Ayokay pre-game, and when I am walking up to the plate, I love to play with some dirt in my hands to keep me relaxed.
