Here in his own words are 5 things you didn’t know about Mickey.

Mickey Stec - Nashville1. I am a huge country music fan. It is normally all I listen to. Some of my favorite artists are Kenny Chesney, Granger Smith, and Garth Brooks. On top of this, I am very big into country music concerts as well, having been to over 20 concerts. It is one of my favorite times of the year.

2. I have been fortunate enough to be able to use my baseball ability to receive a quality education. There was a simple rule in college – “you don’t pass your classes, you don’t play in the game.” Using this mentality, I was able to receive an associate’s degree in science, with a concentration in exercise science from Bergen Community College and a bachelor’s degree in Sport and Entertainment Management from Neumann University.

Mickey Stec - college3. Aside from baseball, I am also an avid golfer (although my score might not say so at times). During the warmer seasons, I usually like to play at least once a week.

4. While I was a junior at Emerson High School, I created my own non-profit called Innings in Relief. I enlisted help from my teammates, as well as local newspapers and businesses to pledge money for every scoreless our pitching staff threw that inning. All of the proceeds went to a local charity that was aiming to help the recent earthquake victims in Haiti. It was a tremendous success and other schools, including our rival, joined in with the same idea to help causes of their choice.

5. I have been a Little League umpire since 2012. During every summer and fall, I normally do between 50 and 100+ games. It is a great way for me to stay within the game from a different view.
