Seth Baldwin ’12

Name: Seth Baldwin
Hometown: Hendersonville, N.C.
Year: Junior
Major: Communications

On or off the field, Campus Cutie Seth Baldwin is still the same genuine kid from Hendersonville, N.C.   Ask him about his study habits, batting average or his most embarrassing moment, and he’ll gladly share his story.

Where do you study on campus?  I usually study during study hall in Kenan Stadium or at my house, but every now and then I venture out to the library.
Favorite place to eat on Franklin Street?  Well, I usually cook at home.  If I do eat on Franklin, I normally go to BSkis, Artichoke & Basil or Qdoba.  For dessert, it’s got to be YoPo, which is somewhat healthy.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.  I like to dance, and I think I can dougie with the best of ‘em!
Aside from baseball, what’s your favorite sport to watch?  Football would have to be my favorite sport to watch; it keeps me the most entertained.
What’s the first thing you notice in a girl?  Looks.  I have to see her before I talk to her (which is quite respectable, right girls?).  I’m really attracted to pretty white teeth, pretty eyes and her face overall.  Blonde hair or brown hair doesn’t matter…I guess I’m a typical guy.  But, a nice down-to-earth personality combined with a girl who shares the same beliefs in God is probably what would keep me around.
What do you plan to do after graduation?  I hope to play professional baseball.  If I don’t, I hope to find a job with some people I know, working my way up in an organization.  I’d like to see some different parts of the world, too.
What’s your most embarrassing moment?  That’s hard.  I usually don’t get too embarrassed about things; I try to make the best of the situation.  However, I do remember a time when I was eight years old.  I was at church, the pastor had finished the sermon, and as we walked out, I told him goodbye and he replied, “Put one here,” meaning a handshake.  Needless to say, he didn’t get that from me.  I punched him square in the belly as hard as I could; at the time, I thought it was a nice gesture.  The embarrassing part is that when I was 17, he told the entire church what I had done…while making me stand up during the story! 
What’s it like being a student-athlete?  It’s a blessing and a good time.  Getting to know the guys [the baseball team] really helped.  Meeting a lot of other student-athletes is a huge perk, too.  I’m very social and enjoy meeting other people.  On the other hand, finding time to get work done is stressful.  Still, I wouldn’t give up being a student-athlete for anything.
When I was younger, I wanted to be… a cowboy, for sure.  I had to get rid of all the bad guys while saving the damsels in distress.  My cousin and I used to dance to Achy Breaky Heart with our hats on.  It’s funny how things change!
What’s on your iPod right now? Mainly hip-hop and rap.  A little R&B and techno here and there.
