Why I Have My Number: 
“I wanted 7 (Ari’s number), but she asked for it first so I settled for one less. Seven is the most magically powerful number… Or it was one of the first numbers I was given when I started playing and it stuck with me.”

My Walk-Up Songs Are: 
“My walk-up songs are “I’ve Got My Mind Set on You” by George Harrison and “Lover, Lover” by Jerrod Niemann because they are both upbeat songs that bring a smile to my face and help me relax in the batter’s box.”
