Baseball Almanac Top Quote

" Pee Wee Reese told me how good Dolph Camilli was. He said Camilli was an outstanding first baseman, the best the Dodgers had until Gil Hodges came along. I met Camilli after the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles . His son, Doug , was a catcher who came up through the Dodgers ' farm system and was my teammate for a few seasons, and Dolph would come to the ballpark to see Doug . I was struck by the fact that Dolph had so much power for such a little guy - only 5'10" and about 185 pounds - but he was strong." - Hall of Famer Duke Snider in Few and Chosen Dodgers: Defining Dodgers Greatness Across the Eras (Phil Pepe, Triumph Books, 04/01/2006, Page 21)
