Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"One of my favorite recollections occurred in 1961, during the Angels' first spring training in Palm Springs. Relief pitcher Ryne Duren decided to cap off a night of closing bars by chipping golf balls off his pitching coach's motel windows at 3 a.m. Finally, (Marv) Grissom opened the door and shouted, 'Hey, Ryno, got sort of an early tee time don't you?' " - Los Angeles Times Writer Ross Newhan in The Sun News (Steve Moore, 09/26/2005)
