Quotable!
"Steve has to take advantage of his peak earning years, but God, sometimes I wish I had someone to cuddle with. Baseball wives are told how lucky we are, and we're not ungrateful. But I have to have someone to talk to at night. Steve is gone 92 days a year. In the off-season he's busy with business affairs."
--Cyndy Garvey, then wife of Dodgers first baseman Steve Garvey

(For example, put your mouse over the abbreviation "CAT." in the table below. An explanation showing that this field is for categories should appear near your mouse pointer. We also show how many more votes a failed candidate needed when you put your mouse over the required amount. We find these tips helpful and do this in many places on our sites.)

Share Your Memories!

Our sites have always been by you and about you. If you check our TV Forums or our Technology & Science forums, you'll find literally thousands of messages from fans of 1970s TV shows, survivors of hurricanes or aircraft accidents, etc. from all over the world sharing their memories, asking questions, making comments. Our baseball section is new, but don't let that stop you from sharing your memories of the first game you went to, your favorite player, a now-forgotten stadium, etc. Of course you can also ask questions, post trivia, tell the world what you think of Barry Bonds, or just read what others are saying.

--Patrick Mondout



 

HALL OF FAMER

Harmon Killebrew may not have been a great player, but it is hard to deny a guy who has 573 home runs (and who didn't use steriods).
