Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Actually the greatest day I ever had as a player was stepping up in Game 6 in the 1991 playoffs. We were ahead three games to two, ninth inning, and I faced Pena . We were down, 1-0. Steve Avery had thrown eight shutout innings. I lined a single to left field. Merced bunted me. Jay Bell hit a fly ball to right field. And Andy comes up, and I'm at second thinking, 'If he goes deep here, we win. We go to the World Series.' He pulled some balls foul. Everybody held their breath. Andy ended up striking out, but it was pretty thrilling." - Gary Varsho in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Paul Meyer, 07/03/2006, 'Q&A: Gary Varsho', Source )
