Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Well, my dad taught me that there's three parts. There's hitting, there's defense, and there's baserunning. And as long as you keep those three separated, you're going to be a good player. I mean, you can't take your defense on the bases, you can't take your hitting to the field, and you can't take your baserunning at the plate. But defense, is number one." - Ken Griffey, Jr. (ESPN, Behind The Lines Interview, 2008) [ Ken Griffey, Jr. Quotes ]
