PN Interview

PN Interview: Cody Asche

This weekend, Phillies Nation was granted VIP Access to Sports Vault’s All Access program at the Philadelphia Sports Card Show and Convention. There, we were able to speak to a number of the guests which included many Phillies, past and present. For the next week, please check out our exclusive interviews and give our friends at Sports Vault a click for the best sports memorabilia and upcoming autograph signings!

Ian Riccaboni, PN: What was the biggest challenge of competing in your first full season at the Major League level?

Cody Asche, third baseman, Philadelphia Phillies: I would say, since I spent time on the DL this year, staying healthy was one of my bigger challenges this year which was unfortunate that it happened, but it did. But I learned from it and I moved on.

IR: Does that make it tougher to your rhythm at the plate?

CA: Certainly doesn’t help! I mean, I wouldn’t say it makes any more difficult. Major League pitching is hard enough as it is. Any time you miss a significant portion of your games, it is going to be tough to find it, yeah.

IR: You’ve come up with a group of guys, a crop of guys, Freddy Galvis, Cesar Hernandez, Darin Ruf. What’s it like coming up with a group of guys, guys that you know?

CA: It’s good. I think we’re all eager to prove that we are capable of being winning players and capable of being part of a winning team. We naturally have a little big of camaraderie together. We just have to go out there and keep working and keep playing together.

IR: What’s the biggest challenge you are looking forward to in 2015?

CA: Improving. I think that is the challenge that faces every player and I think that’s why we all play, to get better and to prove to ourselves that we can get better.
