Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I was one of the few who changed an umpire's decision. While with the Red Sox playing Detroit in Detroit, I slid into second base after Lefty Grove had tried to sacrifice me to second. Bill Rogell received the throw from Gehringer and the umpire called me out. However, Rogell had dropped the throw and I landed on the ball as I slid. So I picked up the ball and said, 'How come I'm out?' and handed him the ball! He had to change his decision." - Gene Desautels (Personal letter from a private collection)
