I was a little hazy [Saturday]. I feel a lot better [yesterday].
I tried to sell it the best I could. I thought I did a pretty good job.
It was nice to lead off the game and kind of set the tone for us.
I’m putting a little too much pressure on myself, rather than relax. I’ve been on base a few times, hit some balls hard at people. I think I’m kind of selling myself short a little bit. We still have three weeks left. I’m not worried about it. But I’m not satisfied.
My whole body seemed to seize up on me in a full cramp. It was really scary.
It’s a lot of responsibility, but I’m up for the challenge.
I just decided to play it up as a catch. And then I saw the ump giving the out call.
It felt good just to get off to a good start. We haven’t had a lot of those.
I was comparing myself to what I was doing last year. I’m trying to get myself right.
Last time, I [recovered] pretty quick. This one doesn’t feel nearly as bad.
For me, the biggest thing was just getting all the wows out of the way, and that was mostly stuff like the new cities and stadiums and facing a certain great pitcher here or there, … Better to do it now than next year. We want to be winning right off the bat.
It’ll be great to be part of the team again, just joke around and not have to stretch by myself.
These projects are being worked on because, obviously, they impact student life.
It wasn’t the usual Sunday game. We wanted to come out with a win.
It was real nice to get back out there and do some things on the field.
