Marcus is a senior pitcher and shortstop playing for the Cannon Falls baseball team. 

The Beacon asked Banks about why he loves playing baseball, whether he’d like to live on a beach or in the woods, and whether aliens exist or not.

What’s your favorite part about playing baseball?

I like playing with my friends. 

Do you have a favorite baseball moment in your career?

My favorite moment was when we were sophomores, we were playing a really good team with a really good pitcher, and Riley [Miller] hit a bomb over the right field fence. 

Do you have a favorite professional baseball team and favorite player on that team?

The Twins. Max Kepler.

Do aliens exist?

Yeah, I think aliens exist. I’d probably say there are green monsters out there. 

Cats or dogs?

I’m a dog person because I have a dog. 

If you had to choose between living on a beach or a cabin in the woods for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

I’ll go with the beach because I like to swim. 

If you had to pick between having super speed or gills, which would you pick?

I’m going to go with gills because I’m going to be living next to the beach. 

Eliminate one of these social media platforms: Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter.

I’d probably go with Twitter. I’m on the other ones more than I am on Twitter.
