Baseball Almanac Top Quote

" Hoot Evers was my first roommate. They couldn't have put me with a nicer guy. In fact, the second night there we caught a train from Detroit to Chicago. We got in about seven in the morning and, of course, everybody got cabs to the hotel and ate breakfast. Well, I went around the corner and found a breakfast for 50 cents. When I got back to the room, there was a 'Do Not Disturb' sign on the door and I didn't go in there. I went down to the lobby and I stayed there, sitting in the lobby, 'til about two o'clock. Hoot came down and said, 'Where in the world have you been?' I said, 'Well, I came in, went up to the room, and there's a 'Do Not Disturb' sign on the door and I wasn't going in there!' 'That was for the maid so we could rest up!' 'Well, I wasn't going in there.' (Laughs) He was a real nice fellow." - Wayne Causey in Baseball's Bonus Babies: Conversations With 24 High-priced Ballplayers Signed from 1953 to 1957 (Brent Kelly, McFarland & Company, Wayne Causey , 03/10/2006, Page 79)

James Wayne Causey was a Major League Baseball player for the Baltimore Orioles (1955-1957), Kansas City Athletics (1961-1966), Chicago White Sox (1966-1968), California Angels ( 1968 ) and Atlanta Braves ( 1968 ). His Bonus Baby story:

Wayne Causey, from Ruston, Louisiana, was inked to a deal that paid him a $35,000 signing bonus. Brooks Robinson , from Little Rock, Arkansas, was inked to a deal that paid him more than $30,000 less. And it was probably the best thing that ever happened to him.

At the time, there was this idiotic rule that if you paid a guy more than $4,000 to sign a professional contract, then you had to place him on the major-league roster and keep him there for two years.

And that's what Wayne Causey was playing for the Baltimore Orioles when he was eighteen. In three seasons, he played in 135 games ... and batted .187 with two homers and fourteen RBI.

Causey finally went to the minors, was traded to the Kansas City Athletics , and wound up having a decent career with them and the White Sox .

Brooks , on the other hand, got his four grand and went straight to the Piedmont League, where he belonged. He moved up the ladder quickly but he moved at his own pace, and he became the star that Wayne Causey was supposed to become.
