The Pennant

Getting to Know: Jason Migas

Jason Migas is one of the top seniors on Penn’s 2021 baseball team.

How long have you been playing baseball?: I’ve been playing since I was 5 or 6, starting with Tee Ball at Harris in Granger.

What is the most important lesson you’ve learned through Athletics?: Don’t take anything for granted, the case being last year as our season was cancelled out of nowhere.

What are your pre-game rituals?: Make sure I stay hydrated throughout the day leading up to the game and then just mentally preparing while warming up and stretching.

Who is a player (at any level) you look up to, and why?: I would say Tim Anderson, who is the White Sox Shortstop. He’s my favorite MLB Player and I like the swagger he carries in his game.

What do you love about representing Penn High School?: Penn has a history of being a great school both athletically and academically, and I just want to make sure that I can keep that trend going in the right direction for my teammates and I.

What traits do you love in a team leader?: I would say someone who communicates well and knows what they’re doing and knows when to take charge.

What advice would you give a freshman about Penn Athletics?: Just keep competing and giving 100 percent effort and your time will come sooner or later.

What is your favorite place that you have been for a competition?: The Rock Sports Complex in Milwaukee. They have fields built to replicate four different MLB stadiums.

What is your dream college to play baseball for and why?: I would probably say Notre Dame just because I grew up a fan of all N.D. sports and still am to this day. Also the idea of staying local and representing where you came from would be cool to me.

What do you love about your sport?: I like that baseball is not an easy sport by any means and the amount of failure that is involved with it. It just makes the successes that much sweeter.
