Episode 19: Get to Know Royce Lewis

Royce Lewis was tearing the cover off of the ball when Spring Training 2020 came to an abrupt end in early March. This week, we caught up with the Twins top prospect to discuss many topics including his 21st Birthday (which is today).

First of all, Happy Birthday to Twins top prospect Royce Lewis. He hits that 21st Birthday milestone on Friday. And like Ryan Jeffers, who turned 23 on Wednesday, he will be celebrating his birthday a little differently this year. Because of COVID-19 and suspension of the season, they are able to be home celebrating, rather than at the ballpark. Certainly both would prefer to be playing.

Recently, I caught up with Royce Lewis and discussed a number of topics including:
  • His memories from when he was drafted first overall three years ago.
  • His 2019, including his Arizona Fall League performance and experience.
  • His experiences with Team USA.
  • How winning baseball just seems to happen on teams he plays on.
  • Turning 21.
  • Moving to Texas.
  • His second big league spring training.
  • How he's been spending his time since being sent home.
  • What he's been researching online to keep bettering himself.
  • And starting his new YouTube channel. (By the way, check out one of his videos below and be sure to subscribe)

As he notes, broadcast journalism is a big interest for him, and you can tell he's going to be very good at it... after his playing career... which hopefully is a long time into the future.

Please take a listen to this interview. Join me in wishing Royce a Happy 21st Birthday, and as you have time, listen back to previous episodes of the Get to Know 'Em podcast.

I`m very high on Royce Lewis & Ryan Jeffers. Both are very talented, motivated & in great opportunity to make the team as middle fielder & catcher, where we need players in supportive role in the very near future. Also very pleased that`s Ryan`s birthday is a day before mine & Royce`s is a day later. Happy birthday to both & wish you both long & prosperous careers as Twins.
