Fields of Dreams
Dave McMahon -- The team just finished playing 8 games in 10 days and you pitched in 5 of them, do you need a rest?
Joshua Fields -- No. In the beginning of the season you need rest so your arm can get ready. Now it's the end and I just want to go out there.
DM -- What is it like being the closer?
JF -- I love coming in because the crowd gets restless and they are anticipating a win. It is a great feeling.
DM -- Who is your favorite closer in the major leagues?
JF -- Mariano Rivera. He has such a great presence. The way he goes about his job, he is so great.
DM -- You come in and you throw heat... what is the fastest you've been clocked at?
JF -- Last week vs Kentucky I reached 98.
DM -- Earlier this year in Orlando you talked to ESPN's Peter Gammons, what was that like?
JF -- It was great because I would always watch him on "Baseball Tonight." I didn't expect it but we talked about baseball and the Cape Cod summer leagues.
DM -- Being from the Athens area, how many Georgia games did you go to growing up?
JF -- I went to some until I decided that I was going here and then I went to a lot of them.
DM -- Favorite memory as a fan...
JF -- 2004 Regional vs Clemson. Those were incredible games.
DM -- Feelings as you head into your first SEC Tournament...
JF -- Don't know what to expect. We had to make it this year since we didn't last year. That was a goal of ours.
DM -- Thank you and good luck this postseason.
