It’s a scorching afternoon in mid-July. The sun, sitting high above, has blanketed everything in an unbearable heat— most of us are lounging out by the pool, cool drink in one hand, half-liquid Popsicle in the other, seemingly dead to the world in our heat-induced lethargy.

But Andrew Vester ’17 refuses to be slowed down. He’s out with his team, baseball in hand, preparing for his next game. In fact, that’s where he can be found for the vast majority of the year, even when winter sets in and most of us give up and accept our new cold-induced lethargy. “I try to play straight through the winter. At most I’ll take like a week or two break,” he says.

Vester plays baseball on a travel team through the Summer and Fall, practices with his team in winter, and plays on the Staples team in the spring. For him, baseball is almost therapeutic—when he’s on the field, the outside stressors in his life melt away—much like our poolside popsicles—and Vester’s able to clear his mind of all things -- except the game.

However, he’s not just your average jock. When not on the field, you can find him feet up, reading Leon Uris books, playing guitar and writing news stories.
