Who were your heroes growing up?

My biggest hero was my Dad.  He played football and baseball.  I also wanted to be like my big brother who played at University of Michigan.  As far as baseball players, I looked up to Ken Griffey Jr. and Cal Ripken Jr.

 

What is your career highlight so far?

Hopefully, it is still to come.  Our manager and I played against each other a long time ago.  He would get so mad at me for hitting so many home runs against him.  His last game he drilled me right in the knee.  My highlight is that now I can remind him about all of those home runs.  He tells me that now I am so slow because he hit me in the knee.

 

What is the best part about being a baseball player?

Definitely not the long bus rides and sleeping on the bus.  My brothers were way older than me, so I was hoe alone a lot.  It is cool to have 24 brothers for the summer.  It is fun to travel around and pull pranks on these guys.

 

What is the best baseball game that you have ever watched?

I was at a game a long time ago.  Mark McGwire was playing for the Oakland Athletics at the time.  I went to a game in Detroit in the old stadium.  He hit this home run completely out of the stadium on the roof.  In the same game, Rickey Henderson broke the stolen base record.  He pulled the base right out of the ground, held it over his head and was shaking it.

 

What does a typical day look like for you?

I'd like to say I get up real early and eat a good breakfast.  In reality, my alarm clock goes of at noon and then I have something like leftover pizza for breakfast.  I am hoping that my mom does not read this because she won't like this.  At 2 or 3, I'll drive to the gas station and get a big 64 ounce Dr. Pepper and get to the field at 3:30.  I try to pul a prank on Scott Robinson our 1st baseman.  He thinks he is a cowboy.  I'll hide his motorcycle or his horse.  At 4, we come out for batting practice.  The first few rounds we work on some line drives.  The last rond, if there are cute girls around,w e try to hit some long home runs for them to see it.  We then watch some TV, get the uniform on, and for 3 hours you play a great game.  We sign autographs after the game, eat some more pizza, play video games, get to sleep, and do it all over again.  Not too bad!

 

If you weren't a baseball player, what would you be?

Have you seen the movie Top Gun?  I would want to be a fighter pilot like those guys.  Something cool like that - something that all the girls like.
