Brett Austin

"I usually just hang out. I like to work out. He gives me crap about it because he has more home runs than me."

"I like to ping pong, video games. I have a girlfriend, so I hang out with her. I try to keep her happy. That's basically what I do."

"For all three of us, we don't like to lose at anything... we want to win."

"We play Call of Duty... we're competing to see who gets the most kills."

"He likes to give me a hard time."

Trea Turner

"You can't not be nervous."

"Even though I got drafted out of high school, this one seems more legit."

"My mom always looks... my parents keeps up with that stuff."

"I don't pay much attention because no one knows everything."

"I hope everyone gets the opportunity. I hope Brett gets drafted high... I hope they all get drafted and get a chance to play."

"I'm surprised that me and Carlos are the first three-time All-Americans."

"I'll play wherever... I think I can play shortstop. I think I can improve more than I did this year."

"We were talking about that last night... three years have gone by real fast."

"I've changed a lot. I change the way I hit and field... everything. I don't think I was a very good high school player... I still have a lot of improving to do, but I feel like I'm much better."

"Tough... tough to handle mentally and physically. It's hard to play good as a team every single day."

"It's a hard game... it will kick you in the butt whenever you think you got it."

"You can't get a call changed at home plate unless you have replay and we don't have replay."
