Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I'm done. Nothing is ever for good. That was a great season in 1994, but the next year there were expectations, mostly that I put on myself. I became the everyday DH against righties and had a super year. I had a lot of fun, the most fun, really, I'd had in baseball. I don't hang my head down. I'm happy with how things went overall. I had a lot of fun, made a lot of great friends. But I put together some good years. But this life isn't always great. This is a strange feeling. It's definitely a strange feeling. I feel better since I've done it. But it sounds funny. Retired at 31. I think I made the right decision. Or maybe I'll go play winter ball next year. If that's the way it goes, who knows?" - Bob Hamelin in the Los Angeles Times (Diane Pucin, 06/11/1999, When a Boy of Summer Suddenly Grows Weary , Page 6C)
