Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (Scott McClain) worked and waited but never languished. He controlled what he could and never gave up. And finally, after 19 years, it all paid off. 'We were just hoping he would get one,' (SF Giants Manager Bruce) Bochy said. 'He's such a great guy and he has such a love for this game. That's why he continued to play it. I'm glad he got this opportunity.'" - Sportswriter Jeff Birnbaum on (McClain goes yard in Giants' romp, 09/03/2008)
