Originally written on Summer Ball  |  Last updated 11/19/14
Eric Jagielo is a very talented Junior 3B from Notre Dame. He spent this past summer playing for the Harwich Mariners of the Cape Cod League. He turned in a great summer season and one scout said this about Eric, "the ball explodes off his bat and he has a real future as a power-hitter." Eric hit .291 in 158 at-bats and he was second in the league with 13 home runs. He scored 27 runs, knocked in 29 and he also hit 2 triples for the Mariners. Perfect Game ranked him as the 14th best prospect in the league, while Baseball America named him the 13th best in the league. ^^^ Eric recently answered four questions for us. Summer Ball---Who was your favorite baseball player when you were younger? Eric Jagielo---I love watching baseball and I can't give you one exact guy I remember, but I would always watch the Cubs. One of my favorite ones to watch now are David Wright, Evan Longoria, and Chase Utley. As a kid, I did enjoy watching Ken Griffey Jr. SB---What were some of the best things about playing summer ball for the Mariners? EJ---I would say living out there, it was different from back home. We were really close to the beach so I spent my off days there. Also, the competition was awesome. I got to meet some great players and guys who I am now friends with. SB---What are your personal goals for this upcoming season? EJ---I think my personal goals would be to make it to a NCAA Regional and hopefully keep winning till Omaha. I would also like to develop better as a player. I thought I had a good season last year but I want to have an even better one this season. SB---What is your favorite baseball movie? EJ---The Natural
