Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Silver) Flint was a prime example of the old-time hard-nosed ballplayer. He began playing in the days when no gloves or masks were available and continued to field barehanded throughout his career. It was reported that during his tenure, he broke every bone in both hands and in his face. - Historian Mark D. Rucker in Nineteenth Century Stars (1989)
