"Mostly, it was fun. It was fun to see guys with numbers in the 50s and 60s on the field, to see the first at-bat, first inning pitched, first hit for players who might never have a second. It was fun, as someone just getting into game strategy, to see the additional options Billy Martin or Bob Lemon or Billy Martin or Dick Howser or, get it...had in the late innings. I got invested in Brad Gulden and Damaso Garcia and Mike Griffin because they were new and different and potentially great."
