Braves Quote For The Day ... Morning Tearjerker

Getting nostalgic about Billy Wagner.

I'm getting all emotional up in this blog. Great article about Billy Wagner, with some great quotes, here is one of them:

"I’ve learned a lot about who I want to be," Wagner said. "I retired out of baseball to be a parent. That’s more important to me than baseball. I know people are saying I need a certain amount of saves to get into the Hall of Fame. If (422 saves) gets me into Cooperstown, that’s great. If I never get elected to the (MLB) Hall of Fame, that’s fine with me.

"If I can raise my kids to be good citizens, good people, that’s all I need,"

The Braves have had a couple of episodes lately where players and coaches have shown themselves to be poor role models. I only wish Braves fans had been given a few more years to appreciate what a good role model Billy Wagner is.
