    • QUOTES (3)

      • (on pitching to Philadelphia third baseman Mike Schmidt)
        Baltimore Catcher and World Series MVP Rick Dempsey
        : We never tried to challenge him. When we did give him fastballs, they were always in on the hands. We were going to make him supply his own power. Where I put my glove, the pitchers were able to put the ball.
        Baltimore Catcher and World Series MVP Rick Dempsey: This offseason is going to be mighty pleasurable. I just can't comprehend everything just now. I usually only hit line drives like that in spring training. And I haven't hit this good since spring training three years ago. Whenever I hit a homer, it's something special. It's not every day I hit one. To hit one out on the same day we win the World Series and I'm the MVP, that's incredible.

      • (on losing the Series)
        Philadelphia Reliever Al Holland: We were outplayed and we lost.
        Philadelphia Starter Charles Hudson: This is pretty hard to swallow. This being my first year, maybe I wanted it too much. This would have put a cherry on everything, coming back and winning this game and winning two more.
        (on his 1-for-20 performance)
        Philadelphia Third Baseman Mike Schmidt: Maybe I wanted to do good too bad. Give the Orioles all the credit. They pitched well. They won and they deserved it.

      • Baltimore Owner Edward Bennett Williams: I'm so proud of this magnificent band of brothers called the Orioles. It's the happiest moment of my life in sports.
