Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The Reds offered me $6,000 to sign (in 1966) and my dad got my scrapbook out and showed them my football feats. My dad told them I could play Big Ten football if they didn't offer more. The scout said, 'I guess your son is going to play football.' So we signed." - Darrel Chaney in The Times of Northwest Indiana (John Burbridge, Courtney Linehan, Hillary Smith, WHERE ARE THEY NOW?: Darrel Chaney , 04/03/2013)
