What is your favorite baseball memory? I have many good baseball memories with teammates, but my favorite baseball memory is when I had my little nephew go out and throw the first pitch in one of my high school games.
Who has been the biggest influence in your baseball career? I would say it’s really been my mom and my dad because over the years they have put so much time and effort into me day in and day out. My dad usually works with me on the more physical side of things like working out and training, and my mom helps me out with the mental side of things. She taught me that baseball is a game of failure and you need that mental stability and peace in order to continue in this game because you’ve got to be willing to be happy with the wins and the losses.
What is your favorite way to celebrate after a big win? A nice meal and something sweet!
How do you like to spend your free time? I either like watching movies or going to hit. I’m a real simple guy!
What is your favorite restaurant in Green Bay? I’d say 1919. I’ve had a few good meals from there.
What is your favorite TV show? For my favorite TV show right now, I’d have to say Barry.
What is your go-to pregame snack? It has to be Skittles — the purple pack!
Who is your favorite singer/band? Young Nudy! He’s a rapper out of East Atlanta.
