Deering Provides Relief for Men's Baseball
By Kaitlin Fuelling ('13)

Max Deering
Junior LHP Max Deering

Recently, (SCB) sat down with Max Deering (MD), to talk about his time with the Broncos. The junior left-handed pitcher shared some of his experiences, insights into the game and what he is looking forward to about this season.


SCB: Growing up, what positions did you play?

MD: I grew up pitching, playing all three-outfield positions, and a little first base.


SCB: When did you start to become a relief pitcher?


MD: I started pitching in relief my junior year of high school.


SCB: How does the stress of being a relief pitcher differ from being a starting pitcher? Is there a difference?

MD: As a starting pitcher, you are expected to set the tone for the team and the rest of the pitchers. You do this by staying down in the zone and keeping your pitch count efficient. Coming out of the bullpen can be a little more stressful. Usually you come into a tight game with runners on base and you're expected to not give up any runs.
