Farah:  What’s one of your favorite drills in baseball?

Rowan:   I love the outfield drills that we did because the coaches were hitting the ball super high in the air and we would catch it. It was super fun because you don’t really get balls that are that high and that hard.

Farah:  What kind of doctor is your dad?

Rowan:  He’s a cardiac surgeon. 

Farah:  When you have some quiet time, what do you choose to do?

Rowan:  I love reading. I generally love reading history books. I just finished this big book about Dunkirk and I also love reading fantasies.

Farah:  What are your favorite television shows?

Rowan:  I love the office and I love Brooklyn 99. 

Farah:  What’s your favorite food?

Rowan:   I love burritos.

Farah:  What kind do you like?

Rowan:   I usually make it with just rice, black beans and cheese. So yum!

Farah:  What is the best part of being a kid?

Rowan:   Well, you don’t have to work and you don’t have to worry about anything.

Farah:  What is your favorite memory from camp up to this point?

Rowan:  The first day, we were all throwing and the coaches were all really really friendly and really welcoming. They made me feel really comfortable.
