    • QUOTES (3)

      • New York Left Fielder Lou Piniella: It has reached the point with our team that we just wanted to get it over with. Instead of thinking of winning we're thinking of getting it over. It's been a tough season.

      • New York Right Fielder Reggie Jackson: The word superstar is overused a lot. Guys like Ruth, DiMaggio, Mays, Clemente. Now I can say I had one day like those guys.

      • Color Commentator Howard Cosell: (after New York's Reggie Jackson hit his third home-run) Oh, what a blow! What a way to top it off. Forget about who the Most Valuable Player is in the World Series! How this man has responded to pressure! Oh, what a beam on his face. How can you blame him? He's answered the whole world! After all the furor, after all the hassling, it comes down to this!
