"You know, (Early) Wynn didn't like it when batters hit the ball up the middle and through the mound and in one game, I singled up the middle against him. Do you know what he did the next time I stepped up to the plate? He knocked me down and hit me with the pitch. I got up, went to first and scored a run. The third time I came up, I hit the ball up the middle again for another single and we eventually won the game, 3-1. I never really understood why he would get so upset with a ball hit up the middle. That's just the way I hit. I used to hit the ball past the pitcher a lot. Wynn would just get as mad as a hell when you hit it back at him." - Joe Cunningham in Baseball Digest (December 2003)
