What did you love about Detroit when you played for the Tigers?
"The first thing that sticks out to me about Detroit is where it comes from and how it all started. The hard work that was put in to create a booming city. The blue collar worker. How much emphasis is placed on hard work and dedication to your job. And Detroit gets a bad name for its winters, but being from California and going to school in Arkansas, I never realized how nice Michigan was in the summer time. Playing ball here in summer time it's unbelievable weather. Ideal for playing baseball. Being part of the Detroit Tigers and getting that opportunity to play here in the summer months makes it worth playing in the cold months."
