" MANAGER EDDIE STANKY OF THE MILLERS calls second baseman Lee Tate the dead-end kid . This is in reference to Tate's sullenly determined approach to his job. While on the playing field he is a mean, malicious and uncompromising young man." - Staff Writer Dick Collum (The Star Tribune, 04/10/1956, CULLUM'S COLUMN , Page 18)
