Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Whether in high school or the major league, I always thought of my performance this way: I always threw with a purpose, and that was to win. Win, not just for myself, but for my team. Looking at it that way always helped me concentrate more and do better. Now I find myself telling this to the young pitchers I coach." - Bob Kipper
