Q: Were you nervous when you came into that World Series game?
A: Not really. I remember being in the bullpen and the place was going crazy in the ninth when they started the comeback. My father played in a lot of World Series, so I sort of had an idea of what it was all about.
Q: Your father (who died in 2012) has two rings as part of the Big Red Machine in the 1970s. What do you remember about those years?
A: I was really young, but even so you don't forget about a lot of the great players on those teams. That was always in my mind growing up when I knew I wanted to do the same thing my father did. It drove me.
Q: You made a cameo appearance on “Saturday Night Live” in December 1997 with teammates Mark Wohlers and Gerald Williams, hosted by actress Helen Hunt. What was that like?
A: That was a blast and people always remind me of that. I thought my line was a pretty good one. You can watch it on the Internet.
Q: You mentioned that you don’t wear your World Series ring from that season. Why not?
A: Well, I find when I do all I get is a bunch of questions about it. The moment was great for me and of course the team, but I am not one of these guys that brag a lot.
