Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I always kind of liked to be the second-best player on a team. In some ways, I'd almost rather sit behind another All-Star and do my deal and be an All-Star with him and set records and do whatever, never be the Deion Sanders (Maas' teammate on the New York Yankees during his 1990 rookie campaign). I would have loved to hid behind Deion , been an All-Star and let Deion get all the press. But in New York, it didn't happen that way. I ended up having all the press and while it was okay and it was great, I don't think I really needed it to feel good about things." - Kevin Maas in Where Have All Our Yankees Gone?

Kevin Christian Maas was a Major League Baseball player with the New York Yankees ( 1990 - 1993 ) and Minnesota Twins ( 1995 ). After getting called-up from the Columbus Clippers in 1990, Kevin hit twenty-one home runs in only seventy-nine games, finishing second in The Sporting News Rookie Player of the Year Award voting to Sandy Alomar, Jr. !

Don Mattingly , the regular (six-time All-Star) first baseman for the Bronx Bombers , was on the injured list, dealing with degenerated disks in his back, prompting the Yanks to give Maas an opportunity in 1990 . Kevin hit his ninth and tenth career home run in a game on August 2, 1990 , then after a game on August 6th , the New York Times wrote:

Maas, the rookie first baseman who began the day having collected 10 home runs faster than anyone in major league baseball history , hurried his 11th out of the ball park with one out in the seventh inning yesterday to lift the Yankees to a 2-1 triumph over the Cleveland Indians at the Stadium.

'A hanging breaking ball,' Maas said when asked what pitch of Greg Swindell's he hit. 'A slider, a curve, I don't know. It was spinning.'

The ball was nothing short of hurtling an instant later, crunched via a giant arc well into the upper deck in right field. "I'm trying to keep things in perspective," said the 25-year-old Maas, who was called up from the minors and has 11 home runs in 93 times at bat. "A player who hits a home run every nine at-bats is not what I am. But I know what people will begin to expect. All I can do is keep them excited."

Did you know that Kevin Maas was the first player in big league history to hit 20-or-more home runs in a season (1990), where ALL of them were hit after the first of July? Do you know what player next duplicated this feat in 2009? [ Answer ]
