ph_501955.jpgJoba Chamberlain is still a rookie and this is his first Major League camp. But you wouldn’t know it to watch him.

Joba talks to everybody, from the superstars to the scrubs. It doesn’t matter if you speak English, Spanish, Japanese or Taiwanese, he talks to you. Coaches, the manager, the clubbies, the media, the cooks, the security guards and everybody else.

“No, you’ve got to enjoy each other. Just be yourself, don’t change because this is your first spring training,” he said. “You have to be who you are. You’re here for a reason because they think highly of you. Just be who you are and good things will happen.”
