Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Old Alfie was a terrific relief pitcher because he was a lefthander with good control and a great natural sinker that dipped better the more he worked and the more tired he became. He didn't have much of a curve, but somehow his knee action when he sidearmed lefthanded hitters seemd to drive some pretty good ones crazy." - Hall of Famer Stan Musial in The Man's Own Story (Stan Musial, 1964)
