Q: What in-game rituals or superstitions do you have?
A: Before a game, I have to put on my athletic tape right before game time. I also listen to the same song every game five minutes before I go to the field (95 South by J. Cole). I also can never step on the foul line before first pitch. I know it is old, but it is something I think about.
Q: Who is your favorite professional sports team?
A: Atlanta Braves.
Q: What is your favorite food to eat?
A: Probably a big steak with fries.
Q: Name one thing people may be surprised to learn about you?
A: I listen to country music.
Q: Who is your favorite teacher and what is your favorite high school subject?
A: Favorite teachers would have to be my English teachers from my 11th-grade year - Ms. Purdy and Coach G.
Q: Outside of baseball, what is your next hobby?
A: Has to be fishing or golfing.
Q: If you could travel anywhere outside the U.S., what would be your dream location and why?
A: I would say the Dominican Republic, just to experience the baseball culture and the impacts the game of baseball has on people's lives.
Q: Name the person you'd like to meet the most.
A: Tim Anderson because he is in a place that want to be and as a black man, I want to see what he fought for to get where he is and see his work-effort. I also want to see the behind camera work he puts in.
Q: Who has been the most influential person in your life?
A: My dad has been the most influential person in my life. He introduced me into the game of baseball and taught me all the things that he learned from in his career. He has taken time away from his job and has guided me through life. Without him in my life, I would not be in the position I am today.
Q: After baseball, what career are you planning to pursue?
A: After baseball, I plan to stay active within the game of baseball, meaning I am very interested in coaching and being a mentor for younger kids because I was one of those kids. If I am blessed with the opportunity, I would want to own and run my own baseball organization. But if that doesn't happen, I want to coach.
