Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Hank Bauer is the kind of man everybody wants for a friend—because only a suicide would want him for an enemy. When he frowns, Gorgon shudders. When he talks, Thor answers. He is all bituminous at heart, but he is hewn of anthracite. Bauer looks, says one Oriole player, 'like an M-l ready to go off.' He commands respect, he commands obedience, and he commands a certain amount of controversy." - Sports Illustrated (September 11, 1964) [ Hank Bauer Quotes ]
