Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"It wasn't the World Series. It wasn't the playoffs. It wasn't even an important game. But Orel Hershiser felt the world on his shoulders. 'I had so much pressure on me out there. That's probably the most nervous I've ever been in my career,' the Los Angeles Dodgers' right-hander said Wednesday night after shutting out the San Diego Padres for 10 innings and setting the major-league record for the longest scoreless string with 59 innings." - Associated Press Writer Hillel Italie in The Roseville Press-Tribune (09/29/1988, Hershiser sets pitching record , Page B-2)

Fred Schwed, Jr., in How to Watch a Baseball Game (1957) wrote our favorite baseball box score quote, "The baseball box score is the pithiest form of written communication in America today. It is abbreviated history. It is two or three hours (the box score even gives that item to the minute) of complex activity, virtually inscribed on the head of a pin, yet no knowing reader suffers from eyestrain."
