Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"( Branch ) Rickey thought the eye would affect me. He told me I would never be able to field my position. I proved him wrong, though, and he eventually apologized. I think I led every league I ever played in with pickoffs at second base. People would say, 'You can't see second base, what's going on?' Rickey apologized down the road, though. He was an alright guy." - Whammy Douglas on MiLB.com (Kevin T. Czerwinski, 07/30/2008, 'Whammy' racked up wins with one eye', Source )
