Here’s what Trea Turner said at yesterday’s debut presser in Philly:
“I know my wife was very excited, because growing up in Flemington, N.J., [about one hour] from here, so from a family aspect I knew she was super excited,” Turner said.
“She told me time and time again that she was going to leave the baseball side of it up to me, so I asked the baseball questions, but the family side was a lot of her doing. We were kind of teammates in this.
“We weighed all of the pros and cons, and the family aspect was a big factor for us. You learn that through these meetings — you learn how much family means to these guys, to John [Middleton], to Bryce, to Schwarber, and other players with kids on the team. You ask them about their experiences. … It added up.”
