Hall of Fame Manager Casey Stengel once quipped, "Most people my age are dead - you could look it up."

"Baseball is a game dominated by vital ghosts; it's a fraternity, like no other we have of the active and the no longer so, the living and the dead." - Richard Gilman in The Cultural Encyclopedia of Baseball (Jonathan Fraser Light, 2005)
