Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Bartell didn't drink a lot; he didn't carouse a lot. But he had a big mouth, and he took pride in not backing away from people. Although he was an outstanding player, he bounced from the Pirates to the Phillies to the Giants to the Cubs to the Tigers and back to the Giants . The second half of his career he was a player, like Albert Belle today, who was routinely booed in almost every city." - Author Bill James in The New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract (Bill James, Free Press Publishing, 100 Greatest at Shortstops. #37. Dick Bartell , 06/13/2003, Page 615)
