Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I worked with weights and exercises all last winter. (Rod) Carew encouraged me to do it. He pointed out that I had the potential to hit with more power and that if I worked at it I could. So I followed a weights program, did it six days a week during the off season, and I've gotten a lot stronger." - Roy Smalley in Baseball Digest (December 1978)
