“Mound Meeting” is a SportsNak feature-story, following freshman relief pitcher, Jesse Fishbaum, of the Scottsdale Community College Fighting Artichokes. Throughout the year, we will follow Jesse’s story and track his progress as he tries to turn his childhood dream into a reality.
Good friend of SportsNak, Jesse Fishbaum, is currently in his first year as a right-handed pitcher for the Scottsdale Community College Fighting Artichokes baseball team. As recently as a month ago, Jesse had a procedure to fix a problem found in his heart. He recovered quickly and is already back on the field practicing with his teammates, awaiting the news from his coach to see if he will be red-shirted or not. We will be profiling Jesse through his first season as a student-athlete. The regular season doesn’t start until next semester, but that didn’t stop the team from showing us what it’s like to be a college baseball player. The days are long and hard, but it’s all for the love of the game. We’ll be hearing from Jesse later on in the season, but for now enjoy this video and go Artichokes!
