Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"By 1987, the 22-year-old (Ellis) Burks took over as Boston's Red Sox rookie since Tris Speaker's 35 in 1909. Soon, Burks was being compared to the greatest players ever to put on a uniform. 'It was a lot of pressure on a young kid, to hear comparisons to Willie Mays ,' Burks said. 'I put too much pressure on myself instead of relaxing and playing like I can play.' ... 'Just to be his teammate, that's something I'll always remember,' said then- Red Sox teammate Johnny Damon ." - National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum Director of Communications Craig Muder (December 14, 2009, 'ELLIS BURKS BATTLED INJURIES, BUT COULD DO IT ALL ON THE FIELD,' Source )
