Interviewed By Mike Duffy
Mike Duffy: I was wondering when you go from high school to Berkeley, to the minor leagues, what was the biggest challenge when you reach each stage?
Robbie Tenerowicz: The biggest challenge was leaving each one in the past while keeping all the lessons I learned along the way because there’s such a big difference from high school to college (learning how to be independent) and then from college to pro ball (realizing baseball, while fun, is your job now)
Mike Duffy: What is your favorite thing about being a Ray?
Robbie Tenerowicz: I don’t know, I guess I don’t feel like a Ray yet since I haven’t played for them in the bigs! I could tell you my favorite thing about being a Hot Rod last year was how all of us players got to live in the same apartment complex. I was a 10 second walk away from my buddies which was nice…My favorite thing about being in the Rays minor league system is how we are given the freedom to be ourselves on the field, there’s no cookie cutter swing or player they’re looking for, just guys who play hard and play well.
