Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I really missed the way they played baseball over here (in the United States / Scott played in Japan in 1996, for $2.5 million). I'm just a Midwestern boy, not really a fan of crowded train stations. That's all it was - just crowded train stations. The team tried to set you up as nicely as it could. I had a beautiful house to stay in. They basically paid me like I hit 30 home runs in 1995 when I didn't have a good year. But, even with that, it was so much different. They'd sit you on the bench and you really didn't know what you're doing on the bench. Then, all of a sudden, you'd be in there. I can't say it's better or worse over there. It's just different." - Scott Copper in The St. Louis Post Dispatch (Staff Writer Rick Hummel, 03/10/1997, Cooper Will Accept Less To Enjoy Life More , Page 3C)
