Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The year is 1953, and the place is wherever the Chicago Cubs are playing. A flyball is hit anywhere in the outfield, as left fielder Ralph Kiner and right fielder Hank Sauer holler in unison, 'Take it, Frankie!' The unfortunate soul they were addressing was Frankie Baumholtz, who--according to legend, anyway--had to play all three outfield positions concurrently. In the early 1970s, Chicago Daily News columnist Mike Royko commented that 'as late as 1965 he (Baumholtz) was seen lying in the center field grass, gasping for breath.'" - Sportswriter Art Ahrens in Baseball Digest (September 1992, "Frankie Baumholtz: He Covered A Lot of Outfield Ground")
