Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I had never played organized baseball until I was seventeen. Fortunately for me, I found out I had a better opportunity to come to the United States as a baseball player. When I came back to Panama two years later after playing in the Majors in 1964, people were wondering 'How they heck could you make it so quickly.' I told them I had that desire and that burning feeling in my heart." - Ivan Murrell (www.ivanmurrell.com)
