"I think we all know how a player can cross over to the dark side, but I fully expect that I'm the enemy coming in here... I was excited to finally get in there - it was 1:30 in the morning. For some reason I felt some calmness in the batter's box. If you can keep your emotions in check, you have a better chance. I didn't hit it hard, but I hit it where I needed to." -- 10.14.07, Trot Nixon on the game-winning hit
