Tim Hoy, a Senior Wisconsin-Milwaukee baseball player, recently took time to do a Q&A Feature Interview with The Capital Sports Report. His feature interview is about his playing career.

The Capital Sports Report: On playing baseball at Arrowhead High School

Tim Hoy: “Playing baseball at Arrowhead was a great experience. Coach O’Driscoll was a great teacher and coach that did a lot to help me develop as a baseball player and a man. My teammates were a great group of guys that I had known since seventh grade and it was great to play with them all through high school.”

TCSR: On playing football there

TH: “Playing football at Arrowhead was a unique experience that many high school football players don’t get to experience. The coaches are some of the best around and the tradition is second to none in Wisconsin.”

TCSR: On what schools were recruiting you besides Wisconsin-Milwaukee

TH: “Minnesota, Purdue, Miami (OH), UWM, as well as a couple of junior colleges, but out of high school I knew that I didn’t want to go the junior college route because I didn’t want to have to deal with switching schools.”

TCSR: On why you chose to go to Wisconsin-Milwaukee

TH: “I choose Milwaukee, because of its proximity to home and I felt the most comfortable with Coach Duffek and Coach Bigler. The program was having success in the Horizon League and I wanted to help the program to continue to move in the right direction.”

TCSR: On red-shirting a season

TH: “Red-shirting was tough for me because I had never really been hurt before in my career. However, after a while, I started to see how it could be very beneficial for me in the long run. I was able to mature as a person as well as a baseball player, which allowed me to come back from injury a better player.”

TCSR: On your 19 innings red-shirt freshman year

TH: “My red-shirt freshman year was tough because I was able to earn a start the opening weekend and was able to pitch pretty well, but after that start, I suffered an elbow injury that sidelined me for the next two months. This was difficult for me because all that I wanted to do was help my team and I wasn’t able to do so for a couple months. When I came back, I was a lefty specialist out of the bullpen, which I was happy with because I just wanted to play.”

TCSR: On how you are doing so far this season and what you expect from yourself over the course of the rest of the season

TH: “Our team is off to a good start this season; we have a great mix of guys both young and old which really helps. This year I am off to a good start in the back of the bullpen, and I hope to continue to get better as the weeks pass. It is a long season and I hope that I can continue to help my teammates and the team get better during the season.”

TCSR: On what you would like to do after college

TH: “It is a tough time to graduate from college with the economy being as poor as it is, but I plan on heading out to California and either finding a job or continuing my education out there.”
