Marlon Anderson on his family's transition to move

09/15/2006 at 07:00 AM ET

Major League Baseball player Marlon Anderson joined the Los Angeles Dodgers on August 31.  He recently spoke to MLB.com about the transition his family has gone through moving to a new team and town.

“The toughest part of moving to a new team, though, is that my family has to adjust, too. My wife, Shadia, and I just had our third child about a year ago. We also have a 6-year-old [daughter, Zoe] and 4-year-old [son, Caleb Ace]. It’s not easy moving to a different town each year and getting settled in. But my wife and kids are great. They love traveling and they’ve become used to making adjustments. She’s not a woman who panics a lot and she takes on all the responsibility with ease. She keeps everything safe and sound at home for the kids and me,” said the 32-year-old. "Whatever team I am playing for is the kids’ favorite team. They get a kick out of the playroom on each team. They get to make new friends every year and meet new people. It’s a treat for them to experience new things every day.”
