I think anything is possible if you have the mindset and the will and desire to do it and put the time in.
If someone met me on a game day, he wouldn't like me. The days in between, I'm the goodest guy you can find.
He's (George Steinbrenner) the one who gave me a chance to get to the World Series. This is where I wanted to be all along. We had a couple of nice offers from other teams, but I tied my agents' hands. I told them I wanted to be a Yankee.
I love to work with the younger kids who are trying to live out their dreams, if in fact that's what they plan on doing after college to take the next step. A very select few have that opportunity so when you do have the opportunity you know, those guys take advantage of it
Everybody kind of perceives me as being angry. It's not anger, it's motivation.
When I get too much rest, I'm usually erotic.
If you're going to cook a fresh chicken, it's not a big concern. But if you're going to ship a chicken, there's a change in structure.
My only day off is the day I pitch (in regards to how hard he works out during off-days).
My main concern is when it's 2-0, I've got to keep it at 2-0. It gives us a little more of a chance. To give up four more runs, that isn't going to get it done. I don't care who you're facing or who you're playing, it's not going to get it done.
I had to will my way through that game. Sometimes, it takes more than talent or more than a 95-mile-an-hour fastball. You have to will it.
Going to Omaha for the College World Series - the people there are tremendous - huge crowds and a lot of excitement. I still remember those days - you make a lot of friends that you never forget when you win a championship like that
I wish there was a bar I could send opposing teams to and get them hammered or something - I could tell my buddies in New York to leave their places open or something. Playing for the Yankees, guys come at you extremely hard. I have to be ready or I'll be embarrassed
Even though I play a professional sport now, I love college baseball
But I'm not looking forward to trying to strike out a lot of guys
I've been very fortunate. I feel very thankful. I've been able to come home and do some fun things and make it exciting for people here at home
The student body was huge at UT and you had to mature pretty quick, very quick actually. I enjoyed it and it helped me a lot in my life in general - not only in the classroom but on the baseball field as well.
The tradition you have at the University of Texas is like no other. It helped me in the future where I got to play in 2 cities that were rich in tradition.
When I look back at the tapes, your first everything, your first All-Star Game, your first playoff experience, it just seems like it went by really fast.
My only day off is the day I pitch.
Every time I toe the rubber, it's no different for me than it was in the World Series.
He hit the ball so hard, I couldn't even turn around in time to see it go over the fence.
I wasn't scared (during his first at-bat). I just told them (Mo Vaughn & Kevin Mitchell') to give me all that hockey equipment (forearm pad & shin guard respectively).
I was pitching on all adrenaline and challenging them. I was throwing the ball right down the heart of the plate.
You know in 1982, the year we came in tied for 3rd, we probably had a better team - I mean as far as talent. When we came back the following year and won it, our pitching staff was a little more experienced and it was such a thrill.
Some of my finest memories are from my time at the University of Texas. College baseball, I love it.
