Tanner Scheppers, Texas Rangers No. 4 prospect, had a chance to answer questions about his first season as a minor leaguer:
What is the food like at spring training?
It's awesome. We have a great cook here. Every morning we have a great breakfast, something different everyday for lunch. We're getting pretty spoiled over here.
What is the best meal you have had so far in Surprise, AZ?
What is your favorite song to warm-up to on the mound?
"In The Air" by Jim Morrison
What do you do to take your mind off baseball?
I like to read a lot. Right now I'm working my way through Dan Brown - The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and The Lost Symbol.
What is the best nickname you have heard of a guy having in the clubhouse?
We call Ben Snyder Snidely Whiplash because he looks like him.
What is the best practical joke that was ever played on you or that you have witnessed?
There hasn't been too much of that hazing stuff yet. I know at some point it will come, but not yet.
