"I guess I am an ambassador for baseball. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for that year with the Tigers. I've gotten more mileage out of that one year in the big leagues. I'm very thankful for it. I would never trade that one year. I hurt my arm with the Royals after the expansion draft. People ask me, 'Aren't you mad you didn't make this big money?' I'm not mad. Yeah, I'd like to have played longer. But there are people out there who would have loved to play, but never played one day in the big leagues. I just feel fortunate that I had some talent that God gifted me, touched my arm, and I could throw and make the big leagues." - Jon Warden on Hardball Times (Bruce Markusen, 07/02/201, 'Cooperstown Confidential: Jon Warden, clown prince of baseball', Source )
