Five questions with Alexandria Aces catcher Eric Bainer

Five questions with Alexandria Aces catcher Eric Bainer

<b>Q: Who is your favorite music artist?</b>

A: Parkway Drive, a rock band from Australia. I play drums and I like a lot of rock.

<b>Q: What is your favorite movie?</b>

A: "Tommy Boy," with Chris Farley. Chris Farley just cracks me up. I’ve probably seen that movie 1,000 times and it never gets old. You find something every time you watch it that makes you smile, makes you laugh.

<b>Q: Your dad was in the Air Force and is now a UPS pilot, leading to much relocation for your family. What has the experience been like?</b>

A: It’s really humbling in the sense that you can’t go into a new place and think everybody’s going to respect you. You’ve got to try to fit your way in and be kind to everybody and try to make friends. It really teaches you how to get along with just about anybody — anybody from any walk of life.

<b>Q: How does Alexandria compare to other places that you have lived?</b>

A: It’s similar to south Florida, in terms of the diverse culture and the population and how there’s all kinds of different people. I like that about it. You run into people from all different walks of life. It’s different with this humidity — even worse than south Florida. It’s unbelievable here.

<b>Q: What do like to do in your free time?</b>

A: Listen to music, hang out with the guys and play some Xbox.
