Ian Desmond broke into Major League Baseball with the Washington Nationals in 2009, but it was something that happened while he was a part of the organization at the Class A level that impacted him greatly and still does to this day.

“Eddie Rodriguez was the bench coach for Frank Robinson back when I was a kid in like 2004 or 2005,” Desmond recalled. “I can remember like it was yesterday. We were in Winter Haven (Florida) and I was standing by the bat rack and he said, ‘Don’t ever change, kid.’ I think he meant that as a man. I think he meant that as a player. I’ve tried to stay true to who I was that same day up until now.”
