“I was nervous as heck,” Willie Harris said. “I’m nervous at times when I take balls in the outfield. But when you’re nervous, that means you care. I got my confidence back as soon as we turned the double play. The confidence was there all of a sudden. Once you get that first one out of the way, it’s good to go after that.”
As for third base, where he has actually only made 26 major league appearances (nine starts), Harris said: “I haven’t been in a [Grapefruit League] game at third, but I’ve been taking groundballs everywhere — second and third. I feel pretty comfortable at third base. Second base was a little bit nervous for me today because I know what’s going on. I want to do well. Not only that, what brings on those jitters is you want to show people you can play the position and maybe get a chance to play that position on a regular basis.”
