Brandon Inge:

- "I can't tell you how many times the last two games that I've been on the field and every hair on my body has stood up because they're yelling and cheering so loud."

- "That's a pretty good feeling, when you get that adrenaline rush and your hair stands up."


Sean Casey:
- "This is a baseball city, man."

- "They're fired up for baseball. These people are going crazy, and we need them to keep going crazy."


Todd Jones:
- "Moments in your life are greater when they're shared."
