"A lot of guys, when they retire they want to stay here (the major leagues). When I retire, I'm going to Little League. That's where they need the teaching. If you teach kids the basics there, it will stick with them."
--Mariner DH Carl Everett, on what he'll do when he retires (Seattle Post-Intelligencer)
"In Little League parks now, they are teaching 'SportsCenter.' It's not about catching the ball or throwing. It's all about (hitting home runs). At that level, it should be about baseball. It should be about fun."
I like Everett a little more now, although I would not want to umpire in his team's league...
