I was doing what I love to do: play baseball. Not going to complain about that.
Ballplayers, like everyone else, like to get told they did something right.
I enjoyed hitting in the Major Leagues more than in the Minor Leagues. I didn't want to tell anybody it was easier, because I didn't want to sound cocky. But Major League pitchers had better control, and most of them were around the plate.
I could run like a gazelle, couldn't I?
I loved coming up with players in scoring position and I had to drive them in.
Even during my career, when I read all those great things about me, it's almost like I was reading about someone else. It's almost like there was another person.
I had pain in both knees my whole career. Not many athletes play pain-free. Mine was just more than normal.
It doesn't seem like it's been 50 years. I don't even feel like I'm 50 years old yet, though I've had all these knee and back operations.
