Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The 1946 World Series was a great series. When Harry Walker hit the ball, I can remember feeling a little relieved. And when Enos Slaughter scored that run, it was a wonderful feeling. Winning the World Series is one of the greatest thrills you can ever have as a baseball player. It was terrific to be part of that team." - Harry Brecheen in Baseball Ink (September 2000)
