What was your
My first spring training, [teammate] Steve Lyons and [broadcaster] Jay
Johnstone pulled a prank on me. They were miked up and had a camera hidden at
this restaurant. They set it up that the food they brought me was all really,
really bad. Terrible. I was trying to be polite, but I was making these faces,
and they caught it all on camera. They showed it to the team, and it wound up
on national TV.
What was your most

there were two outs, but there was just one. Ball was hit in the air, and I ran
and got doubled off. We lost 3--2.
