Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I can no longer, in good conscience, play the game in a manner that reflects the positive example for the younger generation of baseball players. Physically, I'm fine, but mentally, my reasons for wanting to be in uniform have become so thin and narrow that I refuse to disrespect the game that has provided so generously for my family in a halfhearted way. This game of ours owes me nothing, but I owe the game at least that much. When a player finds his willingness to compete to be so greatly diminished, that player must leave the game so as not to disrespect it by becoming a player who plays solely for his paycheck and his own personal glory. This is a notion so distasteful to me it makes me physically sick to my stomach." - Jody Gerut (The Seattle Times, Geoff Baker, 02/27/2011, Jody Gerut goes out with dignity , Source )

Did you know that Jody Gerut hit the first home run in the history of Citi Field? On April 13, 2009 , during the first regular season game ever played in Citi Field , following a Tom Seaver ceremonial first pitch (to Mike Piazza ), Gerut homered from the leadoff position to start the game. Do you know what pitcher "helped" Jody make history that day? [ Answer ]

What do Dick Allen ( 1968 ), Willie McCovey ( 1969 ), Dusty Baker ( 1980 ), Rick Wilkins ( 1993 ), Ryan Howard ( 2006 ), Andruw Jones ( 2006 ), and Jody Gerut ( 2008 ) have in common? They are the only visiting players to hit a home run in every game of a three-or-more series against the New York Mets at Shea Stadium!

On May 8, 2010 , Jody Gerut hit for the cycle, the sixth Milwaukee Brewer to complete the circuit, joining Chad Moeller , Paul Molitor , Robin Yount , Charlie Moore , and Mike Hegan .
