Actress Lindsay Frost on son Lucas Giolito: Baseball was ‘a foregone conclusion’ – Chicago Tribune

Lindsay Frost once had an acting teacher who was a big baseball fan and liked to compare the two crafts.

Frost is a longtime stage, TV and screen actress, and she can see the similarities as she watches her son, Lucas Giolito, work his way through his professional baseball career.   

“When you think about it, you are alone in front of a lot of people, you have to be in the moment and you have to breathe,” Frost said. “You have to listen and work with the people around you. There are a lot of similarities actually. Those were my bits of advice for him.”

Giolito will pitch Thursday in his third Cactus League game for the White Sox, looking to continue a strong spring showing thus far. He spoke earlier in camp about emerging as a professional athlete from a family of actors, something Frost told the Tribune recently was “a foregone conclusion.”
