Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"It was a psychological thing for me. I figured the pitcher was tired and that he would float something right over the plate. Not necessarily that he would do that, but it was a psychological edge for me. In my opinion, you have to trick yourself a lot. I would put the pressure on the pitcher. The only reason I was hitting was because my team had momentum, so the pressure was on the other club to stop us." - Jerry Hairston in Baseball Digest (Ed McGregor, "Major League Pinch Hitters: They Live on the Edge", May 1991)
