"I've often been asked what was my biggest thrill in baseball. I always reply that it was when Hank Greenberg hit the bases-loaded home run against the Browns [in September 1945] and we were behind 3-2 at the time. I was the runner on third, and when I saw the ball headed for the seats and knew we were in the World Series. Nothing could surpass that." - Red Borom ( Red Borom Biography , Jim Sargent, The Baseball Biography Project)
