If my uniform doesn't get dirty, I haven't done anything in the baseball game.
You never had the opportunity to play with some of the great ballplayers, but being that close around them, and being in the same category, was a great feeling, to feel that vibe of all the best players who played the game.

Rickey don't like it when Rickey can't find Rickey's limo.
Just because I believed in what I was doing on the field and dedicated myself to playing the game, does that mean I'm cocky? Does that mean I'm arrogant?
Rickey got a big ranch. Rickey got a big bull. Rickey got horses. Rickey got chickens and everything. And Rickey got a 20-gallon hat.
Lou Brock was a great base stealer but today I am the greatest.
I like playing for Oakland, they have a very colorful uniform.
I love the game and I wanted to continue playing. It came to a time that I had to stop.
