"I pleaded with my mother and father to buy me a baseball glove. At first they thought it was a waste of money, but finally they agreed to buy it. My love for baseball was so great, there were times I just threw the ball against a barn door or concrete wall and ran over and fielded it." - Joe Boley in Growing Up in Coal Country (Susan Campbell, 1996)
