@ShawntaeSpencer: Feels great, happy to be part of such a strong legacy and to have such dedicated fans.
From Project_305: Favorite pregame meal?

From @stornetta369: Who's your favorite baseball team?
@ShawntaeSpencer: Pittsburgh Pirates, all day.

@ShawntaeSpencer: Outstanding chemistry so far. And the new staff has really elevated the culture.

@ShawntaeSpencer: It gives multiple looks and it allows a wide range of options to stress the offense.
From @Exxcel: How dedicated were you when you were 14/15 years old towards making it to the next level?
@ShawntaeSpencer: At that age I just had a real love for the game, I wasn't thinking about being a pro yet. I'll do a post soon w/ more details.
