"The biggest thrill was that I was able to put on a major league uniform for thirty years and to know the players I played with and against. I often have said that my biggest disappointment was that I didn't enjoy it more while I was doing it. I should have enjoyed it more. I had a career that many wanted to have, but I let too many things bother me." - Johnny Oates in the Baptist Standard (Toby Druin, 09/03/2001)
