Before Sunday’s game we sat down with BlueClaws 1B Darin Ruf for a ClawCast and pre-game radio interview. You can listen here.
Ruf touched on a few topics, including:
- His current hot streak, on which he has nine hits in his last four games: “It’s just one of those things…I was 0-11 before that…But baseball is a funny game like that.”
- A leadership role within the locker room: “The other day, Hewitt came up to me what my approach was at the plate, and he’s a really good hitter in his own right. But we’re all talking to everyone, and that’s the important thing. Everyone is trying to learn.”
- How close was he to playing football in college, rather than baseball at Creighton: “It was tough at the time because I had to commit to Creighton in the fall, football season in Nebraska. I was getting a little interest from some smaller schools but obviously for the better I made the decision to go to Creighton and it couldn’t have worked out any better.”
