Quote to note

"In 2006 at Triple-A, I was in the worst slump of my career. I couldn't hit the ball to the right of second base to save my life. I was looking for anything to get me going, and I started doing it. I hit almost .300 in the second half and was driving the ball to right-center again. So I stuck with it."
