About this Article
Cyndi Lauper told us in the 1980s that "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." But, as it turns out, so do boys. Justin Demand likes to have fun. The Lakes senior hangs out with his friends for fun, he fishes for fun, he plays baseball for fun. For most of his life, in fact, Demand figured he needed nothing more from baseball than the enjoyment factor. But within the last year, Demand realized that the fun he was having in baseball would be over for good once his senior season ended, and he wasn't ready for that. So, Demand, a 6-foot-5 left-handed pitcher, began to demand more from himself. He's hoping that the payoff for a lot of extra effort on his part will be a fun run through the season as Lakes' ace, and a fun way for him to get himself through college.
