“I know people are going to be suspicious about everyone now. I know I don't have anything to hide. I've never done anything. It's just a shame it's gotten to this point.”

“I didn't go to school three years for nothing. It was something that was understood. Even though I went to play baseball, one day I would come back and get my degree.”

“Sometimes, you're going to have to work hard, sometimes extra hard, and sometimes you still won't get that recognition. That's life. That's the way it is. But if you keep working, eventually you'll get the prize you're seeking.”

“If I just go out and play, the rest will take care of itself. That's what my parents taught me. They haven't been wrong yet.”

“I'm truly blessed to be where I am and accomplish what I have.”

“Home runs are fine and dandy, but as long as you're putting up RBIs ... that's what helps your team win.”
