Mike Duffy: What is your advice to young players?
Nolan Jones: My advise to young players is play multiple sports, and have fun. Weather your a professional or not, baseball will always be a game.
Mike Duffy: Hardest thing about being a 3rd baseman?
Nolan Jones: The hardest thing about being a third baseman is reacting to rockets hit down the line.
Mike Duffy: Besides your hard work who do you dedicate your success to? Why?
Nolan Jones: I dedicate all my success to my parents. Obviously it takes a lot of hard work to get to where I am today, and will continue to take a lot of hard work to keep progressing. But from day 1, none of this would have been possible without my parents
