Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"With the assistance of a good drop ball, at that time a popular manner in which to baffle the batters, he (Kid Gleason) could stand such venerable olf chaps as 'Pop' Anson and 'Dan' Brouthers on their heads." - Evening Telegram (Undated Clipping in the Hall of Fame Library)
