THE QUESTIONS WITH Mike Redmond

TWINS CATCHER

What was your welcome-to-the-big-leagues moment?
I was called up [to the Marlins in 1998], and I got to the dugout in the second inning. I shook [manager] Jim Leyland's hand, the coaches' hands. I went down the line to all the guys like, Hey, what's up? I sat on the end of the bench, and 30 seconds later Leyland came down. He goes, "Red, when you're done saying hi to everyone, take your [butt] to the bullpen!"

One thing about being in the big leagues people don't know about?

If I were commissioner for a day, I would ...
get rid of the DH.

If I weren't in the majors, I'd be ...
a cop.
