"I can tell you how I felt going to the batter's box (during the 1991 World Series). I was very nervous. My knees were kind of shaking. I remember saying to myself, 'Hit the first strike.' I didn't want the umpire to dictate whether it was a strike or not. I wanted to hit the first strike and get out of there. I never felt I wasn't going to do the job. I felt I would get a sacrifice fly or a hit. I was supremely confident." - Gene Larkin in Baseball Digest (July 2002, Bob Sansevere)
