LOS ANGELES, CA - APRIL 09: Los Angeles Dodgers former owner Peter O'Malley arrives at the premiere of Warner Bros. Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' '42' at the Chinese Theatre on April 9, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
Peter O'Malley has been a huge help to me and also to baseball in Ireland ... This was a very satisfying class. Other years, you're fighting to get people to come or to acknowledge it, but the five guys that we put in this year, there was tremendous support.
I'm very proud, I'm very honored and I really salute Shaun for the work he's done, the passion he has, to recognize the Irish tradition in baseball ... Because if he hadn't done that, no one else would've stepped forward to do that. He's captured that here at Foley's, and I really tip my hat to him and I'm happy that he's done it, and I'm glad to be included.
We're new here ... We have a lot of work to do to learn about the community, about San Diego baseball. Ron's been here, he lived it. We work very, very well with him. It was an easy decision.More quotes »
