Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"That's the fairy-tale stuff (Todd Zeile hitting a home run in his final career at-bat) you read about. You draw it up that way, but ninety-nine times out of a hundred it doesn't happen that way." - New York Mets Manager Art Howe on MLB.com (Kevin Czerwinski, 10/03/2004)
