RC Interview with Eric Hosmer

Hosmer was 1-for-2 with a walk on Monday

Eric Hosmer was the Royals' first round pick in the 2008 draft, and the left-handed slugger has already turned heads at camp with his impressive raw power. RC on Monday caught up with the big first baseman to talk about his transition to professional baseball, and to get his thoughts on the Pirates' dispute with Pedro Alvarez that briefly put his contract with the Royals in jeopardy last summer.

Royals Corner: How did you feel at the plate today? Eric Hosmer: I felt great. The whole spring I've been feeling real good, and seeing the ball really well, and hitting the ball pretty hard. It's just another day, just trying to get used to playing every day, and I felt really great. RC: Rumor has it that you hit a ball over the batter's eye in center field during yesterday's game. EH: Yeah... Recommended Stories
