Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I always say that, of all the people I've known in baseball, I respect Branch Rickey the most. I'd have to put Jackie up there on top with him. Mr. Rickey was a genius, and Jackie Robinson is the best proof of that genius. Thanks to the two of them, I was able to overcome my racial prejudice." - Bobby Bragan in the Los Angeles Times (01/22/2010, Times Staff And Wire Reports, 'Bobby Bragan dies at 92; former Brooklyn Dodger managed major league teams')
