Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"There's a story, a funny story, about me (John Kruk) sitting in a restaurant. I'm eating this big meal and maybe having a couple of beers and smoking a cigarette. A woman comes by the table. She recognizes me and she's shocked because it seems like I should be in training or something. She's getting all over me, saying that a professional athlete should take better care of himself. I lean back and I say to her, 'I ain't an athlete, lady. I'm a baseball player.'" - John Kruk in "I Ain't an Athlete, Lady..." (John Kruk, Simon & Schuster Publishing, 01/01/1994, Forward)
