Michael Young talks Life After Baseball, Favorite MLB Player Growing Up & Best Rangers Memories
Fanatics View got a chance to speak with Texas Rangers long-time legend Michael Young.
The 7-time all-star spoke on his life since stepping away from baseball after his 2013 season.
“I love it”, Young told Fanatics View. “I’ve been getting time with my family, which is what i want out of my post-playing career. I get to catch up on last time that I had as a player, and still have an active role in this organization. It’s really the best of both worlds for me”.
In addition, Young was asked about his favorite MLB players growing up.
“My favorite player was Don Mattingly. I liked Cal Ripken, Kirby Puckett, Tony Gwynn, Roberto Alomar – those are all my guys. I loved to watch them play, they were unbelievably great players”, Young finished.
Finishing the interview, Young reminisced on his favorite memories as a Texas Ranger.
“Winning is always the thing that sticks out – the 2010, 2011 World Series in this ballpark. Our first appearance in 2010 where we won game 6 at home to clinch our first pennant as a team – It was the loudest I’ve ever heard a major league ballpark”, he finished.
