Quotes From

"Once you get there and realize where you are, you kind of get caught up in the moment and the charm of the ballpark. Your irritation about losing a day off is quickly transformed. It's kind of like you go back to those wonder years when you first started playing. It's like, 'Wow, this is fun.'" — Greg Zaun, on playing the Hall of Fame Game exhibition in Cooperstown

Factoid 1

In the 1999 Hall of Fame Game, Greg Zaun got into the act and "called his shot" a la Babe Ruth, pointing to the bleachers. He belted the next pitch over a house in right field, prompting a thunderous ovation from the Cooperstown crowd.
