The Questions with Chone Figgins

Angels Outfielder
September 17, 2006

What was yourwelcome-to-the-big-leagues moment?

My first chance,in 2002, I pinch-ran in Boston and went from first to third on a ball that mostpeople wouldn't. The third base coach was surprised. I ended up scoring thewinning run. That one play ended up making my career.

Your mostembarrassing moment?

We were inAnaheim, and a fly ball was hit. I jogged in, and for some reason I keptrunning. It was twilight, and the ball landed five feet behind me. The batterended up on second. The guys gave me a bit of a hard time about it--asking mewhere I was going, what I was looking for.

Favorite off-dayactivity?

Having a realgood meal. I cook fried chicken. I learned from my mom.

If I weren'tplaying baseball, I'd ...

be a bassfisherman. I'm from Florida, and I love to fish. In the [baseball] off-seasonthe fish aren't spawning--so it's harder. If I were out there all summer, I'dbe really good.
