Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Two factors weigh heavily in (Ruben) Sierra's favor: He's a switch hitter and he faces less wear and tear in the outfield. At a similar age, Sierra is ahead of the pace of countryman Roberto Clemente, the only Latin member of the club." - Inside Sports (on Sierra's chances to reach the 3000 Hit Club), February 1991
