Luke Garrison is a hard hitter for the Winter Garden Little League Major Division Tigers. As the first player this year to hit an over-the-fence home run, he is off to a strong start this season. So far this year, his batting average is at about .580, and as a pitcher, he has struck out 18 while giving up only one hit and walking three. The Foundation Academy sixth-grader is also straight-A student.
I started playing at 4 years old. I was just trying out different sports.
I tried out soccer and football. (I) just (play) baseball right now.
Our game was tied. (The home run) tied our game up, so I was happy for that and that I hit the first home run.
This year, two; nine (overall).
That was during the state championship division for All-Stars, and it put our team ahead. (That was) during the summer (last year).
Batting (because) I’m good at it.
Not yet. I could’ve played this year, but I didn’t want to yet.
Never give up.
Fielding — blocking the ball more as catcher and throwing more strikes.
I guess Aaron Judge, because he’s really good at hitting.
Probably the (Tampa Bay) Rays, because they are our home team.
That’s kind of hard — I don’t know many of the stadiums. … Probably the Williamsport (stadium) for Little League All-Stars.
Math. I just like (that) it’s not boring. You learn something new everyday with it.
