Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The primary reason for their ( 1958 Kansas City Athletics ) fast start was the stellar play of left fielder Bob Cerv. 'At long last Kansas City fans can point to an authentic star,' wrote Sports Illustrated . 'In Bob Cerv they have a hero in the classical mode who can bust up any ball game with one swing of his bat.' - John E. Peterson in (McFarland & Company, 09/04/2003, Page 82-83)
