Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The (Seattle) fans were behind me all the way. The city just couldn't wait to get this team and I just happened to hit a few homers and become the first hero for the fans to cheer about. Then I blew my knee out and was hurt for a time. When I came back I hurt it again. After that, it was all downhill for me, but the fans still loved me. I'll never forget them." - Danny Walton in Baseball Digest (September 1988)
