How do you feel about being named Player of the Week?

“It’s a great honor. I honestly didn’t think I played that well last week, but I’m just happy to be named player of the week.”

What do you think about the baseball team’s success during the five game win streak?

“We had a good streak going and put it all together for all five of those games. It’s what we were working for all season and it just came together so we were able to get those five wins out of the six games over the last two weeks.”

How did the team make changes to start winning?

“We didn’t really make any changes we just stick with Picketts, trust him and stick with the process and hope that he can put us in the position to win. It’s finally paying off for us.”

Do you have any pre-game rituals or how do you prepare for games?

“I don’t really have any rituals. I just like to get here (to the field) early, get my swings in and just get ready for the game.”

What keeps you focused during games?

“I just try to stay with the pitcher, stay with our guys and try to understand what the pitcher’s going to do. Also try to focus on what I can do better and at each at bat.”

What professional athlete do you model your game after?

“My favorite player is Dustin Pedroia and I just love the way he plays hard every day.”

What is your favorite memory while playing for Pierce?

“My favorite memory will probably be that walk-off single now.” Conley hit his first ever career walk-off single to win the game for the Bulls on March 3.

What are some of your expectations for the team for the rest of the season?

“I hope we get better every single day and stay competitive. Hopefully we can make playoffs and make a run.”

What is the team doing to prepare for the game against Cuesta this weekend after the BYE week?

“We have the next few days off, so we just need to keep practicing hard. Get better each day and be ready to go to Cuesta on Saturday.”
