Q: This is your first year with the Crabs, how do you like it so far?

A: It’s awesome! The venue, all the fans, the community, they are all into it. All the fans we get, it can’t get any better than that.

Q: You played summer baseball last year in Arizona, how does the Crabs compare with summer ball in Arizona?

A: Night and day for sure. Just how much the team and the community support us and everything that they give us and also being able to live right next to the field. It was miserable in Arizona with the heat.

Q: What position do you play and what do you like best infield or outfield?

A: I play first and outfield and as long as I’m in the lineup it doesn’t really bother me.

Q: How did you first become familiar with the Crabs?

A: My college coach told me about it and said it would be a great experience for me to be able to play for the Crabs and after going on the web site and watching the video on there I was like, “Definitely.”

Q: What’s is your major and what do you want to do after you graduate, is baseball in your future?

A: My major is applied sciences and mathematics and I want to be a pediatrician actually. Obviously if the draft was a possibility I’d definitely go for it but it’s good to have a back up plan.

Q: What is your favorite way to celebrate a win?

A: Just being around all the guys after a win. Everyone’s happy no mater how we won or how well everyone did a win’s a win. It’s fun being around the guys after a win.

Q: Personal goals for the year?

A: I want to get better. I always want to get better. Offense defense both. Being around these guys everyone here on the team is really good so I think they will help me step my game up because I’ll have to play to there level.
