What’s been the best thing about being a baseball player so far?
Just coming out every day and looking at the parks you get to go to and it’s definitely a lot of fun and coming out with the crowd and playing the game the way it’s supposed to be played.
Do you and your brother JD have a sibling rivalry between you?
No. I grew up watching him and how he handled himself and I think I portrayed my self when I started coming up by watching him and tried to follow his footsteps.
Yeah, (laughs), we compete now. But when we were young and stuff we always competed outside in the front yard and playing games. We just always had baseball or basketball games or football games in the yard, any of them, we always had competition.
What’s the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you on the field?
During spring training last year there was a pop fly and I dropped it. That was pretty embarrassing.
Tell me something about you that few people know…
Most people don’t know that I am starting to pick up the guitar again.
I like country, contemporary Christian, whatever. I like Third Day and groups like that.
If you controlled the locker room music, what would we be hearing?
Probably some country.
