Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"JOE GINSBERG played his last major league season with the 1962 Mets. 'It was sort of a fun year,' he said. 'It wasn't fun losing every day, but with all of us old pros, we did have a good time. Especially with thousands of people coming to the Polo Grounds every day.'" - Author Janet Paskin in Tales from the 1962 New York Mets Dugout: A Collection of the Greatest Stories from the Mets Inaugural Season (Sports Publishing, 04/01/2012, 'Where Are They Now', Chapter 10)
