When did you start playing baseball? What attracted you to the sport?
I started playing baseball around the age of 2 or 3 and competitively when I was 5. I think just being around baseball all the time ever since my dad played, and realizing that I was pretty good at it made me love the game even more.
What are your hobbies outside of baseball?
Some of my hobbies outside of baseball are hanging out with my friends and family. I really enjoy fishing when I have some spare time.
What are your expectations for your high school team coming up this Spring?
Our expectations at T.C Roberson are to win the state championship. We really are thriving to be the last team standing in 4A baseball.
What is a typical day like for Braxton Davidson?
A typical day for me is... I wake up around 6:30, shower, and get ready for school. Most of time right I have baseball workouts right after school. Depending on the day, determines what part of the game we focus on. It might be conditioning, pitching or hitting groups. Once I am done for the day at Roberson, I head home to eat dinner. Shortly after dinner, I head to the gym to get my lift in. I normally lift three to four times a week.
What's your favorite television show?
My favorite television show is probably Sportscenter or MLB network.
What's your favorite food?
My favorite food is steak or chicken.
What athlete do admire and why?
I really admire Josh Hamilton because of his story, and the type of ball player he is. Just for him to overcome all the obstacles and circumstances in his life and continuing to be one of the best Major League Baseball player's year in and year out is pretty amazing.
Favorite Major League Baseball team?
I really don't have a favorite team; I'm more of a player's guy. I like watching MLB players play the game the right way. But if I had to choose, it would have to be the Yankees.
