See Bench on Page 31Mountaineer Athlete of the Week Art Brown Intramural softball player Art Brown’s father was a professional football player for the Oakland Raiders so it is no wonder he played sports at an early age and continued on through college and in the professional ranks in Mexico. What is your favorite moment in sports? That would be the last professional baseball game I ever played in Mexico. The funny thing is I didn’t realize it would be my last game. I pitched a shutout and a no-hitter and I thought it was a pretty good accomplishment to be able to be that successful in a professional league. What would you consider your philosophy on sports? I think it’s just a game, and I don’t take it as seriously as a lot of people do. I look at it as another part of life and nothing to be too serious about. What would you consider your favorite professional sports moment? I am a big basketball fan, and I love the San Antonio Spurs. My favorite sports moment is watching Tony Parker play. I like the way he gets into the lane and makes things happen for the team. I am rooting very hard for the Spurs to win a championship. What haven’t you done in sports but wish you could turn back the hands of time and do? In my senior year, I was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 2006 draft. That was a very good moment, but I decided to go to college instead. If you could spend a day with any athlete, who would it be and why? I would love to be able to sit down and talk with Craig Biggio (former second baseman and outfielder for the Houston Astros). He was one of my favorite players growing up, and he could actually do everything on the baseball field. People who don’t know me would be surprised to know that ... I am an avid reader. I read a lot of John Grisham-type books. The last book I read was “The Abduction,” which I thought was a very good book that had a lot of mystery and suspense. Photo by Walt Johnson
