Baseball is a sport where being stupid and keeping things really simple a lot of times is the right way to do things. There are very few guys that are capable of processing a lot of information and applying it and still being good at it. … I don’t want to name names, but there were guys I played with that were so stupid that they’re really good, because their mind never gets in the way.
I just hated being around attention and stuff. In the clubhouse, I hated being around that. I didn’t like anything to do with being around people, for the most part. I mean, I could be around them, just not in a talking situation, and that would make it even worse.
I was actually hoping the Royals would pick me. It was the main team I wanted to go to. Their colors are Royal blue and that’s my favorite color.?
