The College World Series, that's the end-all deal as a college player. To get a chance to play in the World Series and win it, that was surreal.
If I go 500 at-bats and hit 10 home runs, then something's wrong.
I love a hard-hit ball, a diving-play situation where you realize afterward there was no thinking involved. It was 100 percent reaction.
I don't know if people know how hard it is to get a hit or how hard it is to field a ground ball. It's an easy game in principal, but to actually execute the game it's very difficult.
I hope I can always be counted on to get a hit or get a guy in-to be an even keel in the lineup.
I'm not worrying about my mechanics-and that's a fun feeling. It's nice to be confident and not worry about where my hands and feet are.
I've always been counted out. I've always had people believing I didn't belong. I think that has made me work a little harder.
Playing third base, you rarely have time to get into a great fielding position. It's all about reaction.
I think it's awesome. I miss it so much. That ocean has something on me.
