Best Part Of Playing Amateur Baseball: Getting to experience a higher level of baseball with the best teammates there are.

Should players from the "Steroids Era" such as Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, and Roger Clemens be in the Baseball Hall of Fame? Yes. It still took talent from them to do what they did against other players who were probably using the same stuff at the time. It would be impossible to find every player who used them.

Favorite Davis Story or Quote: I don't know many yet, but I would have to say, "Nothin Hurt!" when Milbrath gave up a grand slam.

Your Pick to Win the 2011 World Series: Boston Red Sox

Major League Ballparks You've Visited: Metrodome, Target Field, U.S. Cellular Field

One Piece of Advice for Young Ball Players: Always hustle, use lots of chatter. You can never get down on yourself in the game of baseball.

Don't Ever Do This When You're Playing Baseball: Walk, not hustle, get down on yourself or a teammate.

Parting Thoughts: Hope to have a great experience and to see you all at the ballpark!
