Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (on his starter Dave Rightetti)
      New York Manager Bob Lemon: They're human. You're not a machine. I pitched a couple like that and I still remember being nervous. You can't be human and not be nervous.
      (on whether the injured Reggie Jackson would be in the lineup for Game 4)
      New York Manager Bob Lemon: You bet your life. If I tried to keep him out, he'd probably stomp me to death.

    • New York Starter Dave Rightetti: I knew in the bullpen that I wasn't at my very best. I just didn't feel good.

    • (on his starter Fernando Valenzuela)
      Los Angeles Manager Tommy Lasorda: It was one of the guttiest performances for a pitcher without his stuff that I have ever seen. He was like a poker player bluffing his way through a bad hand.
      Los Angeles Starter Fernando Valenzuela: I don't play poker, I play baseball.
