Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (Tom Burns) was a fair to average batter, but was hardly fast enough to be considered a really good shortstop. He was a fair baserunner, using a first-class slider, going into the bases head first. In fact, he was more of a diver than a slider. At third base Burns was as good as the best of them, he excelled at the blocking game, which he carried on in a style that was particularly his own and which was calculated to make a baserunner considerable trouble." - Hall of Famer Cap Anson in Nineteenth Century Stars (1989)
