|Nieuwenhuis talking with the media.|
In the clubhouse, who is your biggest influence? Who do you go to the most to talk about hitting, fielding, or adjusting to the major league life?
There's a lot of guys , and that's the great thing, I think, about this clubhouse. There's so many guys I can go to. You know as a young guy, you always want to lean on your teammates for advice, for stuff like that. We have so many guys like that, you know Murph, and Thole, and Duda, and even David, you know there's just so many guys.
Is there something comforting coming up to a major league team and playing with X teammates in the minors? Does that make it easier for you?
I think so. You know, I can only speak from my experience, and it's been nothing but great. Being with guys that I've been around a little bit in spring training the past two or three years, and then also playing with Duda and Ike in the minor leagues...it's been nothing but great.
