    Q: What does it take to achieve the kind of success you have had?

    A: My personal belief is that everyone is created equally. In my
    opinion, talent doesn’t exist. I think it comes down to being obsessed
    with what you want to be. If you are obsessed with what you want to
    be, you will find a way to make it happen. You just have to decide.
    Personally, I haven’t ever been willing to accept that anyone is going
    to be doing more than I am to get better at this game. It’s not just
    about what you want, it’s about how hard you are willing to work to
    get what you want. If you want to be a Division I baseball player,
    work for it. If you want to be the valedictorian, work for it.
    Regardless of what it is, wanting something is a lot different than
    working for something.

    Q: How do you like your manager A.J. Hinch?
    A: A.J. believes in us. I remember when I first got called up, I went
    1-for-30-something and he said, “Hey, I believe in you. I’m moving you
    up in the lineup to the two-hole.” And that right there kind of made
    me feel like I belonged in the Big Leagues. And he does it countless
    times throughout the season with everybody in our lineup. His
    unwavering confidence in us really sets the tone for our team. And his
    belief in his players makes his players want to run through a wall for

    Q:What is about you that makes you so fearless?
    A: I don’t know. I think it’s just due to the preparation I put in in
    the offseason and Spring Training, and knowing that I have such good
    teammates around me, that I just need to do my part and pull my end of
    the rope.
