West Fargo's Andy Gravdahl competes in Pitch, Run and Hit Competition at All-Star Game
Minneapolis, MN (WDAY TV) - Andy Gravdahl/Competed in Pitch, Run and Hit Competition: “I started out really happy after the pitching, but after that I got a little frustrated because my hitting didn't go so well and the other guys did better than me. The running I was kind of in between because the guy who did better than me in batting almost did the same as me in running. I don't really know how good I did, so, I'm really frustrated right now. But, it doesn't really look it because I'm at Target Field so I'm pretty happy.”
What is this like for you being up in the stands?
Dave Gravdahl/Andy’s Dad: “Oh, it was great. It was fun to watch. He had a pretty good day. If he would have had a little better hitting he would be more happy. But, it was fun. They had a lot of fun it looked like.”
How much pressure did you put on yourself coming into this?
Andy: “A lot, because I really wanted to win this because this was my first and last year because I won't be able to do it next year. So, I really wanted to do good.”
Being here for the all-star game, knowing that you're going to be out here later tonight with all of your heroes hitting balls to you. What goes through your mind when I say that?
Andy: “The main thing is that I don't want to get hit in the face and robbing a homerun would be pretty awesome, but that's not going to happen.”
Theresa Gravdahl/Andy’s Mom: “I think that's probably going to be the most fun and I think that's what they're looking forward to the most is just being out there. I told him to just don't jump and catch a homerun that takes one away from a player.”
DI: You have to be pretty proud to get here. There's only a select few guys and you're here.
Andy: “Yeah, I didn't want to do it at first, but my Mom and dad wanted me to. So, I did it and I'm pretty happy I did it.”
