“I’d say fishing. I’ll fish for anything, but mainly we bass fish. We have a pond near our house in Texas that’s stocked with fish.”
Lou Montanez, OF
“I boat and fish a lot in Miami. Shallow water fishing, flu fishing or saltwater fishing. I’m pretty addicted to it. I have a lot of equipment- but most of it was probably a waste of money. My wife tells me that at least.”
Jeff Samardzija, RHP
“Uh, I snowboard. It’s frozen water, I guess. I can ski and wakeboard, but I’m just really not that good at it. My water sport is more throwing an anchor out and floating around on the water.”
