On September 27, 1984, Quirk hit a game-winning home run in the bottom of the ninth for the Cleveland Indians in a game against the Minnesota Twins. It was the only plate appearance Quirk had for the Indians, and was meaningless for Cleveland, which was in 6th place in its division. But the home run was crucial for Quirk's former team of seven years, the Kansas City Royals, which was in a tight race with the Twins for the American League West division crown. With Quirk's home run, the Royals moved two games ahead of the Twins with three to play. The Royals clinched the division the next day. Quirk would return to the Royals in 1985 and play four more years in Kansas City.

On September 6, 2012, Quirk was involved in a benches-clearing incident during a game between the Cubs and the Washington Nationals. Quirk was yelling from his own dugout, apparently at Nationals third base coach Bo Porter, causing Porter to leave his position as third base coach and approach Quirk. Ultimately, both teams came out onto the field and Quirk was ejected by umpire Jerry Layne.

He was the Manager of the Lake Elsinore Storm and the San Antonio Missions in the San Diego Padres system before he was promoted to the El Paso Chihuahuas on June 17, 2015. Quirk is currently the manager of the Wilmington Blue Rocks in the KC Royals system.
