"Catching is a pretty rough deal and you better love it or do something else for a living. Every finger on my right hand has been broken at least twice...I used to put on some adhesive tape and keep on playing. Just tape two fingers together and make the good one work for the bad one." - George Gibson in Catcher: The Evolution of an American Folk Hero (Peter Morris, Ivan R. Dee Publishing, 09/16/2010, 'An Enduring New Model', Page 253)
