Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"This extremely superstitious native Puerto Rican, who feared touching the cross, had a ML career interrupted by several trips to the minors. In his only season as a regular, as the Cardinals' shortstop in 1962, (Julio) Gotay hit .255." - Author Rich Marazzi on BaseballLibrary.com
