Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Baseball always has been my life, from the very first when I was a boy growing up in Mexico. My father was a very good baseball player in Cuba and Mexico as a young man. He moved to Mexico before I was born, but he always loved baseball and I inherited that from him." - Jorge Orta in Baseball Digest (March 1988)
