Tony La Russa reflects:
"He was such a terrific big-game player I wasn't surprised that he delivered. You're talking about an individual who is very strong mentally. He wouldn't be devastated by anything."
"Jim Edmonds had so many qualities as a player. This guy was a special talent, with a grace to the way he played the game. He cared about his defense as much as his offense. He was not someone you worried about being able to handle the pressure of a big game. On top of all that, Jim was and remains a very caring teammate with a great heart.
