Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (Billy Baldwin) could hit the ball anywhere. I was throwing batting practice to him one time and he said for me to throw the ball anywhere except low and away. So I wondered why and threw him one just to see what would happen. Thank goodness I was throwing behind the L-screen on the mound, because he smashed one back at me and said, 'Don't throw me low and outside! I already know how to hit those.' - Baseball Coach John Sarver on Ohio.com (Jim Isabella, 07/06/2011, 'Akron native and former big-league baseball player Billy Baldwin dies', Source )
