"I know you're supposed to have a speech ready for an occasion like this, but I dtfi't know what I'm gonna say. I'm gonna talk from the heart. I'm gonna say what I feel at the moment. "I think I'm gonna say I was proud to pitch to Roberto Clemente, I was proud to have played with Hank Aaron, proud of the era I pitched in, and proud of the heritage I come from—the heritage where you had to work hard and scrounge for a buck."
