Quote to note

"As a backup catcher, I was always told [that] if you block the plate and save a run, it's like hitting a solo homer. I don't play every day. When I get in there, I have to do whatever I can to help the team win. If it's giving up my body, that's how it goes sometimes." -- Lou Marson
