"What can you say about Hurricane Hazle? He came up to the Braves at the end of July [1957], and for the rest of the year nobody could get him out. I've never seen a guy as hot as he was - ever. He was something else to behold. He hit over .400 and regardless of the rest of the team, he really put us on the A track, or whatever you call it. He got it started, and he kept us going." - Hall of Famer / Teammate Eddie Mathews in Eddie Mathews and the National Pastime (Eddie Mathews and Bob Buege, 1994)
