Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"When you've played baseball as long as I did, a lot of things come to mind. I suppose it's every ballplayer's dream to play in the World Series, and in 1965, playing against the Los Angeles Dodgers for the Twins, was probably one of the most exciting things that happened in my career." - Harmon Killebrew
