Mike Duffy: What was it like playing for University of Texas, Arlington? What are some of your favorite moments there?

Noah Vaughan: Playing at UTA was everything I hoped it would be. It was a great program that got me the exposure and experience I needed to excel as a player. I can’t thank the University and the coaching staff enough for getting me where I am today. My favorite moments there include beating no. 4 Texas Tech at Globe Life Park my sophomore year, beating Texas A&M in 18 innings in College Station on a Tuesday Night, and hitting a walk off home run against Georgia State to finish off the sweep my Junior year.

Mike Duffy: Is there a certain personal reason you chose to wear #3?

Noah Vaughan: There’s no specific reason I chose number three. I came in and joined the team a week lake so it was one of the better numbers still left to choose from.


Mike Duffy: Did you buy anything cool with your singing bonus or are you saving it up?

Noah Vaughan: I haven’t bought anything with my signing bonus yet. I plan on investing majority of it so It can grow and be available for use later when I need it more.


Mike Duffy: What is your favorite thing about being a lefty?

Noah Vaughan: I like being a lefty because to me there’s just something about a lefty swing that is so sexy. Lefties are always considered “weird” but I think righties are just jealous they don’t have it like us.


Mike Duffy: When did you know you wanted to play professional baseball?

Noah Vaughan: From the age of four when I was asked in school what I wanted to do when I grew up I always wrote “be a professional baseball player” and usually got a laugh out of my teachers because it’s not realistic, but I knew it was obtainable if I simply put the work in.
