Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Floyd) Baker turned down a football scholarship to sign with the (St. Louis) Browns. After an unimpressive beginning epitomized by his two strikeouts as a pinch hitter in the 1944 World Series, Baker developed into one of the best fielders in the A.L." - Author William Brashler in BaseballLibray.com
