„I tell you, I'd be lucky to hit.280 in New York. There are too many people in New York, and if you don't want to be a bad guy, you must go to all the dinners and meetings. How could I concentrate on baseball? I have so many good friends in New York that it is hard to turn them down. But it is that way every place on the road. I tell the hotel that I will not be disturb, [sic] but people find me anyway.“
— Roberto Clemente Puerto Rican baseball player 1934 - 1972
Speaking after the 1972 NLCS, as quoted in "Puerto Rico Has Lost a Hero"
