When the Reds played the 'futures game' in Dayton, a few of the players who had come through Dayton had a press conference with the media. There were all of 10-15 of us in the room at the time. Joey Votto came to the podium and he just looked absolutely terrified and had the 'I really need to get out of here' look on his face. That always stood out to me. Great player, but seems very uncomfortable talking to people.
