Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"It was a strange phenomenon when he(Mark McGwire) walked to the plate. Everybody in the stands was anticipating a home run. It's hard to imagine anyone hitting a home run every time. At the same time, everyone knew the next homer could be the longest home run ever hit." - Gary Gaetti in The Quotable Baseball Fanatic (2004)
