"The wind had been blowing in all night, and maybe it was a freak because when I came to bat, the flag in center field was still. I was thinking he'd ( Harvey Haddix ) been keeping the ball away from me all night and maybe he'd do it again, and he did and I hit it." - Joe Adcock [On hitting a game-winning double to break up Harvey Haddix 12 inning perfect game.] (Richard Goldstein, 05/04/1999, 'Joe Adcock, 71, Power Hitter For Milwaukee Braves in 50's', Source )
