Johnny Oates

From the AP:

“Gloria said one of their prayers was that he would be in Heaven before Christmas,” Showalter said. “I bet there will be a heck of a baseball game up there tomorrow … no, the day after tomorrow. It will take John time to get organized.”

From the Washington Post:

“This is not a script I’ve written for myself,” Oates said in a 2002 interview. “I’d rather be managing a ballclub somewhere. But this is what I’ve been dealt. And I’m at peace with it.”

From the Baltimore Sun:

“I don’t know how I could make it without the peace the Lord has given me,” Oates would say. “It’s a peace only he can give. There are always going to be those who are skeptical, but I am thankful for the mercy and the peace.”
