I always liked this quote:
"I don't know that it's so important to have Tug McGraw's autograph. It's not like he's Donald Duck or something."
-----Elementary schoolgirl on meeting Tug McGraw at his children's school, Sports Illustrated, November 20, 1978.
"(Shoeless Joe Jackson's fall from grace is one of the real tragedies of baseball. I always thought he was more sinned against than sinning." -- Connie Mack
"I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)
