Q: Who was your most memorable player from that championship season?
A: I was very close with the pitchers, with Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, John Smoltz and Steve Avery. I had daily contact with all of them. But what I really remember was David Justice and how clutch he was. I grew up a Dodgers fan and followed a lot of good players. There were a lot of good players but not clutch ones. David was the ultimate clutch player.
Q: You have a great Smoltz story from that season.
A: I think it was 1995, but we were in L.A. and Smoltz was pitching. We were about 30 minutes away from the first pitch and I had to run down to the clubhouse from the truck where I needed to get something from our bag down there. I see Smoltz and he has his glove and spikes in his hand, but he is on the telephone making a tee time for the next day in San Diego when we were off. I came back to the truck thinking this might be a long day for John because he is not focused, but I think he pitched a shutout and gave up only a few hits. We still talk about that.
Q: Where were you during the clinching Game 6 in the World Series?
A: Actually, I came to the park four innings late. Our (TV) crew didn't do those games and our graphics person was Ashley Gallagher and she was getting married. But I left the reception and got there in time to see Justice's home run, the celebration and get with the camera crew and get everything.
