Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"In 15 years in the major leagues I've spent a lot of time behind the plate, catching a lot of pitchers, but I'm sure about one thing. I've never had a more enjoyable four innings of catching than I did in the seventh game of the 1985 World Series. That was total relaxtion, total pleasure." - Jim Sundberg in the Game I'll Never Forget (Baseball Digest, August 1988)
