In this episode of The Dirt, we’re joined by one of the newest Dragons in town, Jacob Hurtubise (pronounced HURT-uh-bees).

This guy has already had quite a story, from growing up playing baseball in Indiana to starring as an All-American at West Point, to becoming the very first baseball player to take advantage of the DOD’s new policy allowing service academy graduates to delay active service while playing professional sports.

Hear the story through his words, find out what he's binging on Netflix, his thoughts on the abundance of stats in baseball and just how he got so darn fast.
