Meet The Herd: Baseball Newcomers

NASHVILLE - With Opening Day nearing, Lipscomb baseball would like to feature the new faces of the team this season. Get to know The Herd by checking out the details on some student-athletes below.

 

Brady Simpson #6 l Freshman l LHP l Marietta, Ga. (Sprayberry High School)

Why did you decide to come to Lipscomb?

I decided to come to Lipscomb because of the connection I felt with the campus along with the coaches and then as I got here the more people I got to know. This felt like a great place to be and it's a great area, obviously in Nashville.

What is one thing you're looking forward to in your first season at Lipscomb?

I think that we are very young, but we all know what we need to do and where we need to be in order to get to where we think we all should be. At the end of that, hopefully a conference championship and who knows past that.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

I guess to fly would be pretty cool. Getting from one place to another really fast would be great because I'm not fast on my feet.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

Just to always go hard at everything I do and if I'm not giving it my all then why am I doing it.

What do you think has been the biggest adjustment from high school to college?

The big difference is just not having your parents as a safety net. You just have to start making decisions on your own and if you mess up then you have to figure out a way to get out of it on your own and not really having your parents to call.

 

Bryce Einstein #24 l Freshman l RHP l Ft. Myers, Fla. (Canterbury School)

Why did you decide to come to Lipscomb?

I came here because once I had my first meeting with Coach Forehand, Coach Ryman and all of them I knew right away that this is where I wanted to spend the next four years of my life. They are all great guys and I feel like they will help me progress not only as a baseball player, but as a person off the field as well.

What is one thing you're looking forward to in your first season at Lipscomb?

We have such a good bond throughout this whole team, so I'm looking forward to seeing how close that we are and how that is going to help us throughout the season.

What is your favorite class or subject?

Right now I would probably say physics. It helps with my last name, Einstein, but I just like to figure out why stuff happens and how it does in the real world.

What is your favorite thing about Nashville, so far?

There is always something to do. There is never just a boring day in Nashville. I don't think that sentence, a boring day in Nashville, has ever really been said. I just like how the weather is great and how you can always go out and you will never know who you will meet.

If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring three things, what would they be?

Definitely a baseball because that's been with me my whole life. I'd bring a boat so I could get of the island and then some gas to fuel the boat.

 

Gavin Grubbs #16 l Freshman l UTL l Canton, Ga. (Creek View High School)

Why did you decide to come to Lipscomb?

I came here for a camp the fall before we actually came here and I loved it. I fell in love with the coaches and all the players. My girlfriend also goes here.

What is one thing you're looking forward to in your first season at Lipscomb?

I would say just hanging out and having fun with the team. We have a really good connection together, so just playing and having fun.

If you had to pick another sport other than baseball to play, what would it be?

Football. I've just always loved it being a wide receiver.

If you could be apart of any sports team in history, what team would you want to be on?

Probably the record-breaking Golden State Warriors, the season where they went 73-9.

What is your favorite holiday?

Probably Thanksgiving. I just love it with all the food, football and family.
