? Rocky Bridges, manager of the Phoenix Giants in the Pacific Coast League, after finishing second in a pregame cow-milking contest: "I didn't try too hard. I was afraid I'd get emotionally involved with the cow."

? Ken Singleton, Baltimore Oriole outfielder, watching 39-year-old Brooks Robinson play in a 1966 uniform at an Orioles' oldtimers' game: "My bubble-gum card just came alive."
