Samad Taylor Agrees With Teammate JP Crawford: “West Side Is The Best Side” 


He agreed with teammate J.P. Crawford that the west side is the best side: 


“I may be biased but that’s how I feel. We love the game a little different” he smiled. “My dad brought it up to me when I was super young” said Taylor, mentioning how he was introduced to the game.


“My dad giving me something to do to keep me on the right path was positive and was everything” he added. I liked different sports growing up but he knocked it into my head that baseball was the way out and the way to success, shoutout to my parents for giving me everything I got” 


Taylor admired a diverse group of middle infielders growing up. Jose Reyes, David Eckstein, and Chone Figgins. Figgins played his entire major league career on the West Coast, including eight seasons with the Angels.


“I’m a small guy and all three of those dudes I named are small guys,” he said. “They played with their hair on fire and brought energy to the game and that’s what I do to try and help my team win” Taylor stated.
