Most famous person in his phone: Andy Roddick. "I sometimes train with him in the offseason," Schwimer said.
First job: Worked frequently in camps as a counselor. Interned for a hedge fund group while he was in college and says that would be his line of work if he wasn't a baseball player.
Person in history he would like to meet: Benjamin Franklin. "I just finished reading the autobiography," he said, "and no way anyone has done more stuff in life than him."
More contemporary person he'd like to meet: Mark Cuban. "The guy's brilliant. Everything he touches turns to gold. From a business perspective as well as a sports perspective, he'd be a great person to talk to."
Toughest athletic experience: "I pitched an entire season in college with an 11 ERA. I had a really bad season and had to reevaluate things."
More on that season: It was 2005 and Schwimer's freshman year at Virginia. He pitched in eight games and only 10 innings, but gave up 14 hits and 12 earned runs. The following year, he posted a 3.12 ERA in 36 appearances.
Athletes he'd pay to watch: Mariano Rivera, LeBron James.
Most memorable athletic moment: Scored 28 points in his final high school game to lead St. Stephen's/St. Agnes (Va.) over nemesis Georgetown Prep. "We were 0-10 against them in my career and we beat them to win the championship. They always won our conference." Roy Hibbert, now with the Indiana Pacers, had 21 points and 15 rebounds for the opponents.
Most disappointing athletic moment: "It has to be, without question, I was 12 years old and we were one game away from playing [for a berth] in the Little League World Series. We were ahead in the last inning with two outs and nobody on base and we lost."
Tourist at heart: "I've never been to there with any free time, but if I ever have any free time, I'd definitely like to check out the historical sites of Philadelphia."
