Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I played for ten years, but that first day in the big leagues was a dream come true because it was always something I wanted to do. I knew there was always those people that had the doubt. So when you go out and you set forth a dream and a goal and you work toward it and you get to experience it, it's like nothing else." - Steve Swisher in The Lantern (Travis Sawchik, 05/23/2001)
