Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"You don't live to 90 without a few blessings, not without making an enemy or two. But everyone who knew him described (Hal) Epps as a gentleman and a sportsman. He was so popular that long after he retired he received an average of three letters a week." - Sportswriter Mickey Herskowitz in the Houston Chronicle (Obituary, August 2004)
