Hawk on mentioning Freddy's perfect game attempt while the game was going on:
"If I was in uniform, I wouldn't say anything [about the perfect game]. But I'm behind the microphone now. When you're an announcer, and you have people tuning in and out the way they do these days, you have to say, 'Hey, there's something special going on here.' My wife called our nieces and told them to turn on the game."
"Make sure you don't get hurt out there, in the outfield, especially. With the bleachers covering the [outfield], it packs it down very hard and makes it feel like cement. It has the advantage that if you hit a ball in the gap, it's going to the wall. But balls hit right at you, you can't charge because they'll be right on top of you. You have to protect yourself on some plays and deal with it."
"Every time I say that, the next day we play like crap. I don't want to jinx it. If we do what we're supposed to do, we can be dangerous."
