Quotable!
"The first year that I became a manager, 1969, with the Twins, I won a division championship. And got fired. The Tigers hired me. I had made $35,000 and the Tigers gave me a big raise. I won another division title and got fired again. Texas hired me, and with a bigger raise. I came in second, and got fired. The Yankees hired me, and tripled my salary, When I got fired there, and Oakland hired me - they gave me an unbelievalbe raise. I've got a long-term contract now, but if I get fired again, I might run for President."
--Billy Martin, Oakland A's manager

Share Your Memories!

Our sites have always been by you and about you. If you check our TV Forums, you'll find literally thousands of messages from fans of 1970s TV shows 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.
