“The New York Yankees have always set the standard. the
tradition of success here is unlike anywhere else, and I’m very
grateful to be a part of it...to play for the Yankees is the coolest
thing—to have a chance to win consistently, not only for one or two [championships], but to leave a legacy.
- Yankees All-Star third baseman Alex Rodriguez, 2004
