"Without him (his high school baseball coach), I would have never become a player. Norm Gigon, a former professional, infielder with the Phillies and Cubs , taught me how to catch even though he wasn't a pro. He reinforced my abilities; and early professional teachers reinforced what Gigon taught." - Tampa Bay Rays Manager Joe Maddon in The Standard Speaker (Hazleton, PA. May 19, 1996. Page 22)

Norm Gigon said, "Everything that has happened to me so far this spring has been a surprise. I didn't know I was playing yesterday until I read the papers the day before. I gave all my equipment award except a glove two years ago. I felt I wasn't getting a chance to make the majors and I didn't want to spend my career in the minors. But Pete Reiser promised me the Cubs would give me an opportunity and they did." The surprise the day ( April 23, 1967 ) he made that quote in The Pittsburgh Press was a fifth inning, two-strike, two-out, two men on base home run, the first and only homer of his Major League career.
