Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"In All-Star Games the players are chosen by balloting. Millions of fans vote. It is Democracy at its most transcendent. All the voters get out of it is the loss of a three-cent stamp or a two-cent postal card. Dishonesty in counting the votes has never been charged." - Fred Schwed in How to Watch a Baseball Game (Fred Schwed, Harper Publishing, 1957, Page 33)
