15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? 9 p.m. It’s usually about the time I start to wind down and relax.

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? My teammates have always called me “Tuck.”

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? I like to help out at my grandparent’s houses. It lets me spend time with them and gives me peace of mind knowing that I’m helping them with stuff they might not be able to do on their own.  

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can juggle.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? I would go back in time. I’d try to fix any major mistakes I had made, and I would invent something that would make a lot of money.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would ask Shoeless Joe Jackson if he really threw the 1919 World Series and if so why.
