"Dolf Loque was an intese pitcher. He worked batters like a surgeon, cutting corners inside and out, up and down. He never hit a batter by accident. One fan was roasting him royally. Luque warned his manager, fat Uncle Robbie ( Robinson of the Dodgers), 'I'm gonna club thees loudmouth weeth a bat.' Robbie said, 'Forget it. He paid and is entitled to sound off.' The heckler turned on Robbie : 'Hey, fat-belly, fat-belly Robinson !" Robbie turned to Luque, 'OK, Luque, club that loud-mouth mother-fucker!' - The Sporting News (1987 Conlon Baseball Card, TM World Wide Sports, 1987)
