"A man who always had an anecdote on deck, (Joe) Garagiola recognized that baseball is a funny game. Indeed, he used that phrase as the title of the first of three books he authored. A good portion of his humor was self-deprecating. Speaking in Washington, D.C., in 1970, he noted, 'It's not a record, but being traded four times when there are only eight teams in the league tells you something. I thought I was modeling uniforms for the National League.'" - By Marty Noble / MLB.com (03/23/2016, 'Baseball, broadcasting legend Garagiola dies,' Source )
