"He (Paul Waner) could drink pretty good. That's no secret. But he could also sober himself up in a hurry. He would do backflips. He had remarkable agility, like an acrobat. Fifteen or twenty minutes of backflips and he was cold sober, ready to go out to the ball park and get his three hits." - Buddy Hassett in Baseball Between the Lines (1976)
