That was one of two rules manager Joe Maddon told David DeJesus when the Tampa Bay Rays acquired him in 2013.
DeJesus appeared on SportsTalk Live on Wednesday to discuss his time spent with Maddon in Tampa Bay.
"Just be yourself out there," DeJesus said of Maddon when the Rays traded for him. "I want you to have fun and I want you to just have that ora of 'just don't worry, just go out there and play.' It kept the whole team loose."
DeJesus also shared his thoughts on Maddon's questionable managerial decisions in the World Series.
