Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Jack (Glasscock) was among the greatest shortstops of the 19th century. Playing without a glove until late in his career, he led National League shortstops in fielding percentage six times and was described by Al Spink as 'one of the greatest players from a fielding standpoint the game has ever known.'" - Historian Robert L Tiemann in Nineteenth Century Stars (1989)
