Those Fightin' Silver Bullets
- Their catcher was mouthing off the whole game.
After the second pitch in the last inning,
I turned to him and told him to be quiet and play the game.
The very next pitch hit me. I thought it was pretty obvious what
had happened. I was angry and frustrated and stepped to walk
toward first base. I looked at the pitcher (Greg Dominy), and he started
laughing at me. That's when I lost it.

- She was on him like a cat on a pork chop.
-- Mark Lastinger, reporter for Albany Herald, 12 June 1997
- As good a baseball brawl as I've ever seen.
All havoc broke loose.
-- Phil Niekro, Silver Bullets' GM, 12 June 97
- They play just the way Phil Niekro has
taught them -- they'll run over you or
under you, spike you, gouge your eyeballs
out and do anything else they can to win. I love 'em.
-- Jack Warner, Atlanta Mustangs, on playing the Silver Bullets, June 1997
- It's not a public-relations
problem -- it's baseball. It might even be a
major step forward for women's sports.
There's sociological value in women
standing up for themselves.
-- Bob Hope, Silver Bullets' President, 12 June 1997
- I can sit in a ballpark after a game
and love looking at the field. Everybody's
gone, and the ballpark is empty, and I'll sit
there. I sit there and think, 'Is this as close to
heaven as I'm going to get?' Or, 'If I get to
heaven, will there be baseball?
-- Kim Braatz-Voisard, Silver Bullets' center fielder, 1997
