Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"In a country that celebrates its baseball players like royalty, Ordonez was now among the chosen ones. A couple years ago, kids on Caracas ballfields would all yell: 'I'm Andres ( Galarraga )' or 'I'm Omar ( Vizquel ).' Suddenly, 'I'm Magglio' was added to the mix. After a six-year journey that included minor league stops in Sarasota, Hickory, Prince William, Birmingham and Nashville, Ordonez realized he had arrived. 'It was exciting,' Ordonez said. 'I get to the airport and everyone is like, `Oh, it's Magglio.' It's a good feeling. When you get used to that, it makes you work even harder: That's what I have done this year -- work harder and see what happens next.'" - Sportswriter Paul Sullivan in Baseball Digest (October 2000)
