‘’ I think she’s going to help me to become a better player. Because you need some time off from baseball. Like when you have a bad game or you end up playing really good, you go home and you need to chill out. Like: ‘OK I don’t want to know anything about baseball until the next day."

He further said:

"Now when I’m on the field I just think about playing baseball, but then when I go home I just think about her and talking to her and what can I do to help her — just everything about her. Baseball is the thing I do, and she’s what I’m doing after that. So she fits perfectly into my life.’’
