Jorge Alfaro is the hard hitting catcher for your Miami Marlins. And since he’s proficient about hitting home runs we asked him what it feels like to round the bases.

"A lot of things come into my head. I'm always thinking of my family and my son," said Alfaro.

As far as ballplayers he admired when he was a kid, Alfaro's favorites are some serious superstars.

"I grew up watching Pudge, Miggy, Josh Hamilton, Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, Edgar Renteria and Orlando Cabrera. There's a lot of players that I watched growing up and thought that I wanted ot be like them," said Alfaro.

Jorge has had a love affair with baseball since he was a child. And for all the future big-leaguers out there, he has this advice.

"Just work hard. If you fail, just get up and keep going and your dreams will come true. I was just a little kid from a small town in Columbia and we don't play baseball that much. It depends on how bad you really want it, " said Alfaro.
