Alex, Age 11: What is the most interesting thing that you have seen in your travels?

Keith Hernandez: Back in my St. Louis Cardinal days, late ’70s in San Diego, U.S. Pacific Fleet HQ. Always took a drive out to Point Loma which is at the mouth of San Diego Bay where all naval traffic passed through either to enter or leave port. I was lucky enough one day to see a U.S. nuclear submarine going out to sea on the surface at full speed. That was eye opening.

Joseph, Age 7: Do you get car sick?

Keith Hernandez: Never.

Laura, Age 7: How did you improve?

Keith Hernandez: Lots of proper practice and never quit.

Nico Mincolelli, Age 9: Who is the best hitter on the team?

Keith Hernandez: Best hitter? Daniel Murphy

Joshua Woodford, Age 8: At what age did you start at? When you were a kid did you ever think you would make it to the majors?

Keith Hernandez: Started at 5, first year in organized baseball (Little League) 8. No, but I dreamed of it and made it my goal in life.
