JUPITER, Fla. (KMOX) - Paul DeJong says the back-to-back homers he and Yadier Molina hit in the 9th inning to beat the Chicago Cubs late last season was not only the biggest moment of his baseball career, but maybe his life.
He talked about the moment with our Chris Hrabe on our latest walk and talk from St. Louis Cardinals Spring Training.
The 26-year-old is coming off his first All-Star appearance and says that he's "just scratched the surface in this league" and wants to quickly become a veteran player that makes an impact on and off the field. He says he looks to Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina for direction on how to do that.
One new way he's trying to get into a groove is playing classical music by Mozart. He says he's trying to get away from the lyrical stuff for a while.
You can watch the full conversation they had on through the Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium players parking lot in the video at the top of this page.
