My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging.
Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision.
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.
The will to win is important, but the will to prepare is vital.
The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.
It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.
We're prepared, and we've done everything we can to prepare for this moment in time. That's what confidence is all about.

It's a game of making great pitches at the right time, being opportunistic by getting a run at the right time and playing good defense.
We go out and work hard. We play this game with emotion and love. Coach always says 'Emotionally, physically, mentally - come to the field prepared.' Because if you don't bring that to the field, you're going to get beat.
It's always about wanting to one-up myself from the day before. There's never an absolute 100% perfect performance, but going out and striving for that perfect performance is what keeps me going.
I think that certain players are going to approach the game differently. I am more of a quiet person. I like to have more of a focused energy and internal energy whereas some people need to be bouncing off the walls to be ready for the game.
