Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"NEW YORK, AP - Jake Gibbs, who a year ago was establishing himself as an All-American quarterback while leading Mississippi to an unbeaten season, may get a chance to become the New York Yankees' regular third baseman in 1962. Three reasons were obvious Wednesday when the Yanks accounted that Gibbs, 22, a bonus baby who played with Richmond in the International League last season, had been promoted to the main roster: 1. To protect their $106,000 investment as a first-year player in the major league draft in a few weeks. 2. To include him in the scramble for the world champions' job at third base should they lose Tony Kubek to the armed services and be forced to shift Clete Boyer to shortstop. 3. Because they happen to think the husky youngster from Grenada, Miss., is an exceptional prospect and might make the jump from college to major leaguer with only one year's professional experience." - Gettysburg Times (AP Sports Writer Don Weiss, 10/19/1961, 'JAKE GIBBS IS PROMOTED IN YANKEE CHAIN', Page 5)
