I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel.
I was taught you never, ever disrespect your opponent or your teammates or your organization or your manager, and never, ever your uniform.
If you played the game the right way, played the game for the team, good things would happen
Hit a home run - put your head down, drop the bat, run around the bases, because the name on the front is more - a lot more important than the name on the back.
There's not too many guys that spend their whole career with one team and I think it's very fortunate and a blessing for me
I've been proud to be a lifelong Chicago Cub and still be with the Cubs. That's always been important to me and I think it's always been special
I was in awe every time I walked on to the field
I struggled many times when maybe it didn't look like I was struggling, and I had to work hard every day.
