Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I guess every little boy imagines this might happen at one time. It's a total fantasy for me. I was a little concerned. We haven't given up all year -- tonight wasn't the time to give up. When we walked into the clubhouse tonight, we knew we were going to be world champions." - Jim Leyland
