Q: Long Shanks. How’d you get that nickname?
A: It was given to me by a fast-footed friend. I could almost out run him, as one of my strides equaled two of his.
Q: What bat do you use?
A: I just look for whatever willow Uncle Jessie is swinging. Although sometimes I’ll pick up a bat I’ve never used before, just to see if it will bring me good luck.
Q: What positions do you play?
A: I’m always in the Garden. Not always the same spot, but always in the Garden.
Q: What’s your favorite moment from last season?
A: Tick Tock and Uncle Jessie crossing the dish a half second apart at Bicentennial Park.
Q: What are you looking forward to most this season?
A: Playing some away games and seeing more of our beautiful state.
