George Brett: If anyone stays away (after the 1981 strike), my response is this - those people had no right to ever come to the park, because they aren't true baseball fans.
George Brett: I don't think I can play any other way but all out. I enjoy the game so much because I'm putting so much into it.
George Brett: He said I couldn't do (off the field) what I did when I was 23 or 24, and I paid attention to him. Damn it, I got a trainer and went to spring training in the best shape of my career and in 1985 had the best season I ever had and we won the World Series. Before that, I didn't know how long I was going to play. That talk with Mr. Fogelman was the most inspiring talk I ever had with anyone.
George Brett: I could have played another year, but I would have been playing for the money, and baseball deserves better than that.
