Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I sort of enjoy moving from position to position. I've played more at third base than anywhere, but if I had to pick a favorite position I guess it would be second base." - Bill Stein in Baseball Digest (August 1988. Good Utility Players Can Always Find Work in Majors . Page 28)
