I`m just trying to work hard every day, trying to be a better player and one day, to be right there with them, one of those special hitters.
I swing hard all the time. That`s what I`ve done my whole life - hit.
All I like to do is work every day and have an idea what I want to do.
I showed people that it`s not about guessing what people can do. It`s about saying, `Here, show me what you can do.`
I come to play everyday.
You just have to go as far as you can go. Everyone works his way up.
Everybody has something to prove each year. Everybody has a responsibility in this game. Even the batboy.
Through the years I`ve been getting better and better and better, and it`s what you learn though the seasons.
I just love the feeling from the fans and when I`m walking on deck I can hear people screaming and wishing you the best. That puts you into the game more than anything.
