Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Ball players have a lot of time before batting practice and after batting practice to discuss serious, worldly issues. We remember one spring the raging argument of the day was whether Blue Jays relief pitcher Tom Henke's forehead was either a 'four-head' or a 'five-head.' Reliever Jim Acker stacked packs of Saltine crackers between Henke's eyebrows and his hairline to get the proper reading. Only problem is, we somehow have forgotten what the reading was, it was so long ago and we can't find it in the media guide. Funny, how time slips away." - Sportswriter Bob Elliott in the Toronto Sun (July 14, 2002)
