Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I just don't allow myself to get caught up in what's going on around -- I just keep focused on what I'm doing at the plate and not being result-based. I just go up there and I've got my approach and I'm just going to hit the ball hard. If it's at somebody, it's at somebody and I'm just going to build off that if it's a positive at-bat, even if you don't get good results. The results are going to come if you consistently keep your approach and consistently hit the ball hard. That's all I try to do." - Billy Butler on MLB.com (Dick Kaegel, 03/20/2013, 'Stronger Butler simply a hitting machine', Source )
