Seal Beach is where (teammate) Huston Street has his in-season home. Huston let me stay there leading up to spring training.

“I was introduced to Javier’s in 2014. Pepe (the owner) treated me like family. Every time I have family or friends in town, I take them to this tremendous establishment. The service, food, atmosphere, and location are ideal for a great dinner and evening.”

“Boomers is a family fun center where I try and spend an off day with my girlfriend. We like to play miniature golf, which I have always loved. The round is competitive with my girl. Unfortunately, she has even beat me a couple of times. We just enjoy sharing time in a place where we can relax and have some fun.
