"I played with and against so many great athletes. It was a pleasure just to be around them. Each team had stars. The Yankees had Mickey Mantle and Joe Pepitone and then you go up to Boston and they had Carl Yastrzemski . It was great to get on the field with those guys." - Bob Chance in The Jersey Journal (Patrick Villanova, 10/08/2013, 'Former Major Leaguer Bob Chance, onetime member of Jersey City Cubs, dies at 73', Source )
