"I've never to this day seen anyone play first base like that. He was just like a big cat over there, and he saved me a lifetime full of errors. It was like you had a million-dollar insurance policy that you had taken out, and all you had to do was get the ball started over there somewhere and he could reach it." - Former Red Sox second baseman Mike Andrews in The Boston Globe (Bryan Marquard, 07/29/2013, 'George Scott, smashing performer in field and at plate; at 69', Source )
