It has been a bitter sweet summer for the North Palm Beach Flamingos so far. They’ve had some strong wins over some of the CLPB’s best and a few heartbreaking losses. Amongst the highs and lows there is one name for the Flamingos that always seems to be in a positive light. A player that contributes both at the plate and on the mound. A player selected to play in this year’s CLPB All Star Game. His name is Cole Fryman. 

Fryman has the second most strikeouts on his team with 24 and one of the lowest ERA’s of 1.58 from 7 game appearances. He also has the fifth best batting average and leads the team in RBI’s with 11. 

So, I sat down with Cole after a Flamingos game and we discussed how baseball has impacted his life. We talked about the highs and lows of playing the game. Below are a few questions and responses I recorded. 

How did you get started with baseball?

Fryman: My Dad played for a long time and my brothers played, so it’s always been in my family and in the blood. 

What do you love about baseball?

Fryman: It is a humbling sport and it’s a love hate relationship. You can go 0 for 3 one day and then 3 for 3 the next. And, the biggest athlete doesn’t always win. So, you don’t have to tackle them like football. 

How does it feel to be selected for the All Star Game and what do you want to accomplish there? 

Fryman: It feels good, I’m glad I’m playing well here. It’s awesome and I can’t wait to face some good competition. I’d like to get some hits, but my goal is to face the best pitching. 

What player do you try to emulate? 

Fryman: I’m a two-way, so when I pitch I like to pitch like deGrom. He’s tall and lanky like me. And, hitting I like Jose Ramirez who plays for the Guardians and is a Third baseman. I like his swing and how he plays the game. It’s fun. 

What’s one baseball stadium you’d like to play in?

Fryman: Fenway. You got to right? Fenways the best. 

How would you describe baseball in three words? 

Fryman: Humbling, Fun, and Competitive. That just describes the game right there. 

What’s been one of your favorite baseball memories?

Fryman: I would say playing at a high level. As long as I keep going up and playing at higher levels, that’s just the best memory I can have.
