Memories from Fenway Park

INTERVIEW WITH CODY ROSS

One of my favorite interviews was two days after my 11th Birthday.  We were in Boston and I had a chance to sit down with Cody Ross.  We talked about his favorite Ball Parks to play in, who he doesn’t like to face, what he does for pre and post game rituals and what he does on the road.   As always I was not caught up in asking the Outfielder about his statics but more about his life in this candid interview.  Amongst other topics we discussed included:  What Cody does for charity work, what his favorite animal is…. Also who is the biggest practical joker in the MLB…and much much more.

Macklemore Tribute to Dave Niehaus

Today my dad showed me a video from Macklemore that was a tribute to Dave Niehaus who was an announcer for the Seattle Mariners.  It was really cool to watch and see him rap about how much he loves baseball and the Mariners.  I wanted to share the video with everyone else that loves baseball.

INTERVIEW WITH CASEY JANSSEN

This was an interview that I did with Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Casey Janssen.  It ended up being aired on MLB.com / Cut 4.  It was really cool because this time I met Casey at the hotel when the Blue Jays were playing the Yankees in New York.   This was different from some of my other interviews because I got to see how the team travelled.

INTERVIEW WITH LEFTY SPECIALIST CRAIG BRESLOW

Craig Breslow is a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox.   He throws left-handed, and is considered a lefty specialist.  This year he has faced more right-handed hitters (98 plate appearances) than lefties (74) and actually has posted reverse splits (.225 vs. righties, .309 vs. lefties). Only one of each has taken him deep this season. With runners in scoring position, he has allowed just one extra-base hit in 43 plate appearances.  Breslow a graduate of Yale University was given the nickname “smartest man in baseball” by Minneapolis Star Tribune Twins writer La Velle E. Neal III.  Breslow helped lead the team and the bullpen deep into the playoffs and eventually the World Series.  I had the opportunity to sit down with Craig and ask him a couple of questions that weren’t all about statistics and more about his personal life.
