"What impressed me, he (Mike Gallo) plays hardball. I like guys like that. He's not worrying what we think. He's out there getting people out. A lot of young guys they start thinking, 'Oh, now I'm in the big leagues. I've got to do better.' Mike, he doesn't think that way. He isn't intimidated out there." - Houston Astros Pitching Coach Burt Hooton in the Long Beach Press-Telegram (September 2, 2003)
