"One thing I felt like I did really well was taking in the moment and enjoying things as they were happening.
When I made my first start, [the Giants] were playing in Atlanta, and as it so happened, my college team, Wichita State, was playing in an NCAA Super Regional in Atlanta at the exact same time we were there, so I got those guys as many tickets as I could, my college coach was on the [TBS] broadcast during the game getting interviewed, and my family was there as well.
I remember looking over at all of them during the game and thinking just kind of like, 'Wow, this is really happening,' and being able to take it all in. That’s the only thing I would tell somebody who is in that situation today. Try to take it all in. Enjoy those moments."
Note: Brummett’s first start was May 29, 1993, and he picked up the win, pitching 6 2/3 innings with three strikeouts — all of Ron Gant.
