LOS ANGELES, Calif. - As the 2013 season approaches, we here at LMULions.com would like to (re)introduce you to some of the baseball players who will be gracing Page Stadium's field this year. We have asked all the players a series of questions that range from why they chose LMU to what they would change their name to if they could. If you have any additional question that you'd like to see answered in the future, please feel free to email Tyler Geivett at tgeivett@lmu.edu.

Today's question and answer session will feature senior Zac Fujimoto.

LMULions.com: What did you do this summer?
Zac Fujimoto: I played summer ball at home in Hawai'i and enjoyed my time there with family and friends. Spent a lot of time at the beach, hiking, camping, fishing, diving, and eating awesome food.

LMU: Why did you choose LMU/What do you like most about LMU?
ZF: I chose LMU because it's "close" to home. A lot of Hawai'i ties up here, reputable business school, beautiful campus, and of course, the baseball. It's impossible for me to narrow down what I like most about LMU to one thing, too many good things, love the school in general.

LMULions.com: Do you have a nickname? Explain the meaning behind it.
ZF: On the team it's Fuji

LMULions.com: What is your greatest highlight on the field?

LMULions.com: You are given $1,000,000 - what do you spend it on?
ZF: I would spend it on my family, friends, and a black Tacoma 4x4. I don't really have too many wants; I'm blessed enough to have everything I need to live, so I would save/invest the rest.

LMULions.com: Are you a collector of anything?
ZF: I just started collecting baseball memorabilia.

LMULions.com: If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
