Why I have my number:

I've always had two favorite numbers: 3 and 10. Three was always softball and 10 was always my soccer number. They were both given to me when I was very young. Three was taken so I went with 10. I still draw a three in the box before every pitch.

Game Superstition:

I draw a three in the box before every pitch.
