“I grew up in Indiana,” Stevens told reporters Saturday, via ESPN.com “You had the Reds two hours southeast, you have the Cardinals two hours southwest, and you have the Cubs and White Sox north. My dad would take me to games in different stadiums. I remember going to Wrigley for the first time — I’ve been in (Butler’s) Hinkle Fieldhouse and Fenway, and I love those old places. So that was kind of the first thing. And my favorite player as a kid, really young, was Andre Dawson. I think he went from the Expos to the Cubs, so I kind of followed it from there.”
