By Jeff Markle
Assistant State Director

Prep Baseball Report Colorado is ready to hit the ground running in 2015 with two major events. With the Underclass Invitational at Slammers South just two weeks away, limited spots are still available for this event.  Over the next two weeks, PBR Colorado will continue to introduce you to 2017 and 2018 players who have committed to this event.  Continuing our second round look at registered players is Ashton Mansur 6-foot-1, 220-pound, RHP/3B, 2017 from Columbine High School.

PBR:  Describe yourself as a baseball player to those who have never seen you play: 

Mansur:  I would describe myself as a perfectionist when I play my game. I always want to be ahead when I am pitching and make the best possible choice when I'm fielding and do that action quick and precise.

PBR:  What would be your dream school to play baseball at?

Mansur:  Honestly, I have never had a dream school to play baseball at because If I leave my options open it can't hurt.

PBR:  What are your best assets on and off the field at this point in your high school career?

Mansur:  On the field I find myself as a perfectionist, as I said before so I am willing to stay an extra half hour or more to take ground balls or go through a motion a couple more times. My best asset off the field is being able to get along and be great friends with a lot of my teammates and work hard to get the best grades every day that I go to class.

PBR:  What does your off-season preparation look like this year compared to you freshman year?

Mansur:  This years preparation has looked similar to last years preparation but I believe I have more drive and want to do bigger and better things.

PBR:  What is the best baseball advice you have received and try to follow to this point in your career? 

Mansur:  The best baseball advice I have ever received is to give it 110% when you step between the chalk lines and to not hold back anything.

PBR:  What are your superstitions or routines that go on during a season?

Mansur:  Routines I have throughout a season aren't too complicated I usually stick to a long good stretch, run my poles after throwing. ice my arm every night during season, keep ahead on my grades so that nothing bad could happen, I usually eat a banana after a day of games to try and get rid of lactic acid, and stretch as much as possible.

PBR:  What are your goals for:

This Season: To be a role model on whatever team I make and to help my team succeed.

Two Years: To play Varsity Baseball at Columbine with my best friends for a championship.

Four Years: Playing baseball in College
