Missoula Osprey first baseman more than just a power hitter


let’s start tonight with our athlete of the week the starting first baseman for the Missoula Osprey stands at six foot four and that weighs a solid 235 pounds he’s not only a power hitter but his last name just happens to be brick house but there’s more than meets the eye with this first year Pro the brick house name comes from curry Tech County North Carolina’s Outer Banks and it’s a it’s a family name that’s been passed on from generation to generation it’s not a made-up one my dad he’s uh he’s six six two fifty he’s a big guy as well so it kind of just runs the family I guess and with that name comes the assumption that his bat has some pop in it and it does brick house may only have two homers this year but has always hit for power in college putting thirty-one balls over the fence in the last two seasons while he is in professional baseball the rookie brings more than just power to the game but brains as well I study mechanical engineering I started out as a lexical engineering to one class and electrical and just didn’t see it very well so I thought it was time to switch over and do mechanical and I essentially ran in my family my granddad was a mechanical engineer and my dad he’s a mixture of mechanical industrial and electrical engineer I’ve always had the ability to live logically look at things and be able to break things down and some that my parents always taught me how to do and they taught me how to think that way and it’s passed over you know into school at the baseball and you know some coaches things overanalyze things but in other cities as a blessing and you know kind of got take it was what it is that’s kind of my personality brick house decided to leave East Carolina a year early and give pro baseball a shot but he says engineering is what he has his sights set on for the long run I got to go back to East Carolina and finish my degree for mechanical engineering and the officers I’m going to try to an internship at an engineering a pharmaceutical company to try to stay within intellectual side of it and trying to lose it all from that learning college whatever career path Brickhouse chooses baseball er engineering for now the engineering is giving him an advantage out on the field I kind of took a lot of mechanical classes I understand torsion and leverage and everything so I some as a power gonna have to understand to try to maximize whenever I go to play but I try to think about the actual number side of it and once I got into Probot routes I need to do it whatever float whatever felt good and whatever smooth is wound up translating a lot better instead of being jerky and you know not having a sense of smooth that’s what your swing that’s something I had to focus on try to bring that back once I put the wood on my hand if the power finally comes around Spencer brick house could be a household name in the near future
