Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"It's true that I didn't get to the Big Leagues until I was almost thirty. But I was still playing regular when I was past forty, and then I stayed on another 20 years as a coach. Golly, if I had to do all over the only thing I'd do different would be to start sooner and stop later. It was great." - Jimmy Austin in The Glory of Their Times: The Story of the Early Days of Baseball Told by the Men Who Played It (Lawrence S. Ritter, Harper Perennial, 04/06/2010, Page 78)
