MIAMI, FL - MARCH 13: Drew Butera #41 of Italy runs the bases on during a World Baseball Classic second round game against Puerto Rico at Marlins Park on March 13, 2013 in Miami, Florida.
It was great getting back on the field with him ... We had a lot of good laughs, a lot of good times. He was one of the reasons our team meshed so well together.
Showing the rest of the world that we’re not just a team you can come in and roll over, that was a big high point for me ... We’re not here just for the experience and free gear.
To experience it myself, there's really no words to describe it ... We didn't go into the thing expecting to lose. We wanted to win, just like everybody else.More quotes »
