CLEVELAND — Get to know more about Shane Bieber as we go "Beyond the Dugout" with the Cleveland Indians starting pitcher...
Question: Describe to me your perfect vacation…
Bieber: Oh, wow! Somewhere probably tropical with a beach, warm weather and a lot of outdoor activities. When I break that down it sounds like I want to go to Hawaii, but I’m sure there are plenty of other places with lots of cool hikes and views and tropical kind of location.
Question: So, what are your favorite outdoor type of things to do?
Bieber: I like going hiking, just seeing different places and being able to check something off the list, something different. And then just really relaxing and being by the beach sounds like a pretty nice day.
Question: If you played another sport what would you want it to be and what would your dream outcome be at the end of that game?
Bieber: Probably basketball. I really enjoy playing basketball. With that said, I am not good at playing basketball, so I always wanted to be good, but I’ve never been too good. Whether it’s a triple-double or game winning shot, anything successful in that sport would be fun.
Question: Biggest regret that you’ve had in your life so far that you would change?
Bieber: Wow, that is deep. I think quitting football in high school. I think I regret that I played two years, broke my wrist and then decided to kind of focus on baseball, which I don’t regret that decision, but I kind of wish I played a little bit longer and enjoyed it more.
