Bremer asked him about why he has always wanted to be a catcher. I found lots about his answer interesting:
"Being in charge. Having your teammates look at you to make plays and setting a good example for them and always hustling. That was always very appealing to me. I've always kind of been that in every sports I played. I was a point guard in basketball and a quarterback in football. So I always enjoyed being in that leadership type of role.
I played different positions growing up. I think when I got to high school, I kind of realized that would be the quickest way to the big leagues: a left-handed hitting catcher. That's kind of when I started to turn my focus to catching and really fell in love with it. "
1. I hadn't thought about how he always wanted that "captain on the field" position in all sports.
2. I find it interesting that he made an analysis in high school that led him towards catcher.
3. I love that he said he "fell in love" with being a catcher.
I think it's worth watching, just for the body language. A lot has been said about who drove this decision. I don't find any evidence that Mauer is not totally invested in this decision.
