Do you want to know the truth, or see me hit a few dingers?
The mind is a powerful thing and most people don't use it properly.
I wish that every player could feel what I've felt in visiting ballparks. The receptions I've received, it's blown me away. It's absolutely remarkable.
If you want to maximize your total potential ... you have to know yourself first.
I study pitchers. I visualize pitches. That gives me a better chance every time I step into the box. That doesn't mean I'm going to get a hit every game, but that's one of the reasons I've come a long way as a hitter
The thing I sort of get tired of hearing is if I don't hit home runs or don't get hits, that the pressure of the media is getting to me. Absolutely not. Believe me, it's not getting to me.
Only sixteen players have hit fifty or more homers in a season. To me, that's a very special milestone.
What he (Sammy Sosa) and I have been doing is fantastic. What we've done nobody in the game has done for thirty-seven years. I'm pretty happy with the way things have been going.
I know it's tough. Everybody in baseball knows its tough. I'm just going to give it my best shot.
This is a great thing that's happening in baseball. We don't know if it will ever happen again.
Sammy Sosa's a September player, so you have to watch out for him. It's crunch time, time to make history.
The only reason I took steroids was for my health purposes. I did not take steroids to get any gain for any strength purposes.
Performance-enhancing drugs are an illusion. I wish I had never gotten involved with steroids. It was wrong. It was stupid.
I didn't even realize it was a grand slam (number thirty-one) because I was mentally preparing myself for Andy Benes because he struck me out the first time.
I'm being embraced by the public, but also baseball is being embraced.
I think back and I really feel for what he (Roger Maris) went through, for all the negative stuff that was going on in his life. I wish it didn't happen.
I've been thinking about the record since I reached the fifty plateau. But you think about it and then you let it go because you can't waste many brain cells on hours thinking about it.
I touched Roger's bat and held it to my heart. My bat will lie next to his. I'm damn proud of that.
I tell you what, I was so shocked because I didn't think the ball had enough to get out. It's an absolutely incredible feeling. I can honestly say I did it.
When people put my name next to (Babe) Ruth's
name it still blows me away. I'm still in awe.
So be it. I’m happy to bring the country together.
I don't know if I want to break my own record. I think I would rather leave it as it is.
I'm not here to discuss the past... I'm here to be positive.
Once and for all, I did not use steroids or any other illegal substance.
I mean, it's unheard of for somebody to hit 70 home runs, so I'm like in awe of myself right now.
