"I remember Opening Day, 1940. I had just come over to the Tigers and it was my first game in the American League. Slick Coffman was pitching for the St. Louis Browns that day and he knocked me down with his first pitch the first time I came up. Then he yelled, 'That's how we pitch in the American League.'" - Dick Bartell in Baseball Digest ('Bar-Tells 'Em', October 1961, Page 64)
