Interviewed By Mike Duffy
Mike Duffy: I was wondering when you go from high school to the minor leagues, what was the biggest challenge when you reach each stage?
Sean Reynolds: Well first off, the jump from the high school straight pro ball is difficult for a number of reasons, first and foremost the level and speed of the game is very very different than what I was used to seeing. Everyone on the field is extremely talented and worked just as hard as you to get where they are, so it was eye opening.
Mike Duffy: What is your favorite thing about being a Marlin?
Sean Reynolds: My favorite thing about being a Marlin is the excitement that comes with throwing on the jersey every day knowing who I am representing. You play for yourself to do well obviously but it’s also about knowing that each day I still have a jersey on is another day I can get closer to Miami, which is always the ultimate goal.
Mike Duffy: What is your favorite hobby besides baseball?
Sean Reynolds: My favorite hobby besides baseball is probably golf, even though I’m not very good. It’s a fun way to spend any day even when you suck hahaha.
Mike Duffy: Who was your favorite baseball player growing up?
Sean Reynolds: My favorite baseball player growing up was David Ortiz hands down. He always got it done when I counted most and the energy and joy he played with was always something I tried to emulate.

Mike Duffy: Do you have a motto or a thing to do to get you out of a rough time?
