"It was real hard not to be going back to Baltimore. I really enjoyed being there and getting to know some people really well and make some new friends. And, to me, that's the hardest part of leaving a place: the relationships you leave behind. The baseball aspect is fairly similar. It's the same game, the same kind of routine, wherever you play. But it is the people you get to know and not just the players. It's the media relations [people], the community relations [people], the media; the people that you build relationships with over a period of time. So to have to leave that behind and not to see those people every day, that's the hardest part for me. And, of course, with the fans, too. The relationships I've made in the community and some of the work that my wife and I were fortunate enough to be able to do, that's the kind of stuff that I'll miss."
