Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (Bubba Church) doesn't seem to be putting much on the ball, yet every pitch does something. His ball is alive. And he rarely wastes a pitch. He gets it over and makes them hit. He surprised me with his control. Few kids his age are as sharp hitting the corners of the plate." - Philadelphia Phillies catcher Andy Seminick in Baseball Magazine (July 1941)
