The 2013 spring sports season is just two days away.  To help everyone get in the spirit, the Greeneville Sun will be posting a series of  interviews with some of the local high school athletics.  First off is South Greene baseball player Dallas Malone.  Dallas is a senior shortstop for the SGHS baseball team.

What has been your most memorable moment on the baseball field...ever?
    Well during Little League one game, I got plunked in the head and knocked out. After coming back to, I stood up, got my bat, and proceeded to try and hit again because I had no clue what was going on.  

What are your expectations for this season?
    I expect great things from South Greene Baseball this year. We are solid defensively and are very quick. I expect a top two finish in the conference and district tournament.

How would you describe your playing style?
    I try to play as consistently as possible. I play aggressive but very loose. I don't get up tight and I play with emotion.

Talk about your athletic background, sports you've played and when you got started?
    I have played soccer, basketball, football, flag football, and of course baseball. I played all of these until middle school. In middle school I only played basketball, football, and baseball. Now in high school I only play baseball.
What is the best piece of advice you've ever received when it comes to baseball?
    As my dad would say, "It's just a game." Which in the grand scheme of things, this is very true.

If you could talk baseball with anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
    My hero, Larry Wayne "Chipper" Jones. I would talk to him because he knows how to play every position and how to hit any count. He has also kept his nose clean and the way he carries himself is just an inspiration to everyone.

How would your teammates describe you?
    I am very loud! I am the "class clown" you could say. I am very extraverted and love having a good time on and off the field. I am always cracking jokes, quoting movies, and quoting songs.

Who has had the most profound impact on you, both personally and athletically?
    Probably my dad. He has showed me how to live a Godly life on and off the field. He also helps with slumps and little quircks in my game.

Do you have any pregame routines or superstitions?
    Most of my superstition happens with my uniform. I have to put socks on first, left foot then right foot. My undershirt and jersey are next. Finally, my pants left leg then my right leg. My left batting glove has to be left pocket and my right batting glove in my right pocket. I have to throw with Dylan Yates and we have to play our version of "H-O-R-S-E."

What is something about you that most people don't know?
    Well, I am currently teaching myself piano.

Favorite movie quote?
    "You find out that life is just a game of inches. So is football. Because in either game life or football the margin for error is so small. I mean one half step too late or to early you don't quite make it. One half second too slow or too fast and you don't quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They are in ever break of the game every minute, every second. On this team, we fight for that inch On this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone around us to pieces for that inch. We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch. Cause we know when we add up all those inches that's going to make the difference between WINNING and LOSING between LIVING and DYING."
- Any Given Sunday

Favorite smart phone app?
    I unfortunately don not own a smart phone.

If you could be on any TV show, what would it be and why?
    I would love to be on Duck Dynasty! My character would be Sadie's boyfriend!

What are five things on your bucket list that you would like to accomplish in the next 10 years?
    1. Get married 2. Graduate college 3. Go sky diving 4. Visit Italy 5. Possibly have kids towards the end of this ten years

What is your favorite thing to do when a game is rained out?
    Play ping-pong with my teamates! I am a BEAST at ping pong and will play anybody!
