Reading: Magazines on computing and boating.
Food: Beans and rice.
Film: "Midnight Run." I like De Niro. Also, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
Web site: http://www.boatingworldonline.com.
Hangout: Fandango's in Belltown, my new restaurant.
My first car: A beat-up 1971 Toyota Corolla I got in Puerto Rico in 1981.
My first hero: Roberto Clemente, of course.
My first break in sports: A man called Peewee back in Puerto Rico heard that I cried because I was 11 and couldn't play on the 12-year-old team he coached, so he let me play.
If I weren't playing baseball, I'd be in: Business management, the courses I liked in high school and college.
The best part of baseball: The friendships you make, the clubhouse with teammates.
The roughest part about baseball: The travel and schedule.
First impressions of Seattle: The weather, 180 degrees different than back home.
What you do on the road: After games, I usually work on my laptop computer, to contact friends or search for information I need. Before games, maybe a light workout, and time on the phone. It's tough to spend days traveling.
