Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Now a pitcher can't go out of his way to hit somebody, he can't knock you down, and when we played we didn't wear helmets. They'd tell you they were going to put one in your ear and when you looked back and saw the catcher's glove by your heard you got the idea you shouldn't take a toehold." - Del Ennis in Baseball Digest (July 1975)
