Who is your coach?
What is your favorite thing about IMG Academy and why?
My favorite thing about IMG Academy is the training. It's awesome and there are also good facilities like dorms, a pool and a rec center.
Do you have any pre-game rituals that help you prepare for a big game?
I like to rest and drink water before a big game.
What professional athlete inspires you the most?
The professional athlete that inspires me the most is Prince Fielder from the Detroit Tigers because we have the same body build and he's a very good baseball player.
What is your favorite thing to do after you win a game?
I celebrate with my team by going out to dinner or ice cream after we win a game.
What motivates you to push through a tough practice?
The outcome and results motivate me to push through a tough practice. I know that when I'm pushing through a hard practice, I'll come out an even better baseball player than I was before.
