"My goal was to play baseball as long as I could, until someone told me I wasn't good enough anymore. Getting to the big leagues was awesome. Everyone used to say, 'You can get there, but everyone has a hard time staying up there, because guys are really good.' To be able to play with a lot of the best players in the world for the last 15 years, I didn't think that was actually going to be possible."
