Port St Lucie Spring Training 2013

INTERVIEW WITH JUSTIN TURNER

I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to interview several Major League Baseball Players over the last couple of years.  My  family began a quest in 2011 to visit all 30 ballparks and by the end of this summer they will have completed the trip with our last 8 stadiums out West.

The following is a Q&A that I conducted in last Spring Training in Port St Lucie with Mets utility infielder Justin Turner.  Like always, I asked Turner several questions that he was not accustomed to fielding from other reporters.  I am sure that is why he was so enthusiastic about the conversation.
So without further adieu, sit back, grab a favorite drink, and enjoy the dialogue between Justin Turner of the Mets and me.
