Quotations and aphorisms by Hal Newhouser:
I remember one game when I pitched in Yankee Stadium and gave up five runs in the first inning. It would have been easy to quit, but I shut ‘em out the rest of the way, and we came back and won the game.
I know the Hall of Fame is the more sought-after thing. But I’m getting a bigger charge out of my uniform number being put away. Everything I worked hard for and wished for came true.
