Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I rely on my speed and instincts to get to balls that other outfielders can't reach. I play shallow in center field because I want to take away hits from batters and, to me, that's rewarding. I take as much pride in making a great defensive play to save a game as I do in getting two or three hits in a game." - Roberto Kelly in Baseball Digest (September 1992, Tom Capezzuto, "Roberto Kelly on the Road to Stardom with Yankees")
