On his pitching early in his career

Robert Andrew "Bobby" Witt
Texas Rangers
Pitcher

There may have been guys who hit more home runs, there may have been guys who played on more World Series teams, there may have been a couple who stole more bases, (but) it's hard for me to believe there has been anybody able to throw better than him.

On Rangers Catcher Ivan Rodriguez

Johnny Lane Oates
Texas Rangers
Manager

During that time I had to personally release several hundred players, tell several hundred human beings that the dream they'd had since they were little was over, so go clean out your locker.

I don't sit there and watch the clock. That's what's great about baseball: there's no time limit. You can be 25,000 runs behind, but you can keep hitting.

Johnny Lane Oates
Texas Rangers

I was just 19 years old and had been in high school the year before. There I was facing Henry Aaron and Eddie Mathews and Felipe Alou and Joe Torre and Rico Carty. It was very intimidating. A couple years prior to that, I'd had all their baseball cards and here I was on the mound facing them.
