"He (Mike Goliat) was really a third baseman, but he played second for us to fill a need. He really had a strong arm. He was a battler who gave everything he had and he had a lot of big hits off [ Brooklyn Dodgers ace] Don Newcombe the year we won the pennant." - Hall of Famer / Teammate Robin Roberts in My Life in Baseball (Triumph Books, 04/01/2003)
