Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I'm definitely honored. It doesn't feel like it's been five years since I retired. It feels like only a couple of years. But to see your name on the (Hall of Fame) ballot with Eck (Dennis Eckersley), Mollie (Paul Molitor) and (Ryne) Sandberg, that definitely feels good." - Joe Carter in Carter on HOF ballot for first time (MLB.com 12/25/2003)
