Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I grew up with Ernie Harwell. Jack Buck is, like Ernie, an icon. Of course in 1988, when he made the call (Game One of the World Series), it was a special attachment that lasted a lifetime. Let's say it was well said. I couldn't believe what I just saw, either." - Kirk Gibson
