? Lefty Gomez, Yankee pitcher from 1930 to 1942, explaining his fame to Babe Ruth Tournament kids: "I am the one that made Joe DiMaggio a famous outfielder. Every time I threw one, there went Joe with his back to the plate after another fly ball."
? Danny Murtaugh, Pittsburgh Pirate manager, after the team, once 11� games ahead, lost four straight to the Cardinals and saw its lead cut to four games: "One of the funny things about us Irish is we always wait until the patient is dead before we have a wake. If you think the Pirates are dead, you're in for a rude awakening."
