Five Good Minutes with T.J. Bohn

InsidethePark's Joe Ruiz recently caught up with San Antonio outfielder T.J. Bohn, who has burst upon the scene this season as one of the organization's top defensive players. Happy to be with the Missions after beginning the year at Inland Empire, Bohn says the adjustment to a new group of teammates has went really well. Find out what else he had to say, right here at So, what's Double-A like for you so far?

T.J. Bohn: Well, first of all, it's been a lot of fun. I didn't know how I was going to get along with all these guys, but it's great. I'm getting along with them really well. It's been a lot fun, especially since we're winning and playing well which is what we were doing in San Bernie. I'm playing well, too. So far, I'm pretty happy. What's your personal outlook for the rest of the season?

Bohn: I just want to keep doing what I'm doing. I came here with some things to work on and I've been working on trying to hit the off-speed stuff instead of just taking it. I've been doing that and getting a few more hits and a little less walks. I want to drive in a few more runs, but I'm happy with what I'm doing right now except hitting the ball a little harder and more often. Mike Saeger, the broadcast voice of Inland Empire, told InsideThePark that you were the defensive MVP of the first half of the season for them. How do you react to a complement like that?

Bohn: I'd say that I'm honored. It wasn't just me. I had a good first half, the team had a good first half, but we just couldn't catch Lancaster at the end. I'm just trying to go out there and do what I do. It seems that on different nights, another person will step up and perform. Now that you've been here for a bit, what can you tell us about this team from top-to-bottom?

Bohn: It's really a unique team. Each night you have a new guy stepping up and delivering that big hit or have a guy come out of the pen and get that big out or pitch those scoreless innings when we need them. It just seems that no matter where we are in the lineup, we're going to have a chance to put some runs on the board. It's kind of fun to watch when you come in here and see all the guys clicking and going good at the same time. Do you have any words for anybody back home, especially those that have recently subscribed to

Bohn: That would be my mom. She told me that she just got on that, so I guess I just want to say hi to her and tell her that I love her back home in Minnesota and I hope she can make it down here if we make the playoffs again.
