SnakeBytes 6/14: Bring on the Padres

Cody Ross points in some general direction, probably towards Satan. - Stephen Dunn

After a much needed off-day, the D-Backs head to Petco Field for a 3-game set with the Padres before coming back home. In this edition of SnakeBytes, we hear from Derrick Hall and Miguel Montero.

Quotables

I think Major League Baseball is aware of our willingness to help spread baseball's goodwill globally. When we went to Japan and Asia, we worked with MLB on those trips. We've gone to Mexico, we're in the Dominican right now. We like having an international presence and we like to spread our brand with whatever opportunity we have. So when Major League Baseball approached us and asked if we were willing to open in Australia, we were naturally ecstatic about it.

- Derrick Hall

We hope that you will each grow up to be Diamondbacks players. But the most important thing is that you should play the game the right way, respect your parents and teachers and always remember when you're on these fields that the D-backs care about you.

- Derrick Hall

He was the biggest supporter in my career. He was the person that taught me how to believe in myself even when others don't think you can do it. He told me to believe in myself and do everything that I do with passion. He said if I didn't want to do it, don't waste my time.

- Miguel Montero
