Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts is a newbie to Boston, but he recently had the opportunity to field questions from some young fans. Check out his answers in the video.

1. What’s your favorite kind of cookie?

My favorite kind of cookie is probably chocolate chip.

2. Do you love your grandmother?

I definitely love my grandmother. She’s back in Aruba at home, so I don’t get to see her often, but every time I’m back there, I spend a lot of time with her.

3.What do you do when you go to your grandmother’s house?

Normally on Sundays we go over there and have a little lunch. That’s something very traditional in our family.

4. Do you speak any other languages?

I do speak about four languages — English, Dutch, Spanish and Papiamento. Papiamento is what I speak at home with all the Arubans.

5. Who is your best friend?

My best friend is probably my brother. I’m a twin, so he’s one minute older than me, so he’s definitely my best friend.
