Induction Speech

Did You Know: 
that Robin Yount is the only player to have twice garnered four hits in a World Series game, turning the trick on Oct. 12 and Oct. 17, 1982?
I've never been much on stats. Usually those things don't cross my mind as much as helping the team win. I've never set goals for myself. The only goal I've ever really thought about is to win the World Series.
