Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"They called him (Pink Hawley) the Duke of Pittsburgh. They named a cigar after him. They rated him as one of the great pitchers of all time, a king of speed ball artists, a pitcher who could field and hit, a pitcher who would rather win a game than cash in on a $20,000 bit of dishonesty. And $20,000 then, as now, ain't marsh hay." - Milwaukee Sentinel Wire (09/20/1938, 'Pink Hawley, Great Mound Wizard of Yesteryear, Passes')

Did you know that Pink Hawley was once bribed to throw a game? The following excerpt appears in Hawley's obituary which was printed in the Milwaukee Sentinel on September 20, 1938:

Also, during his Pittsburgh career, came an event that shows Pink's love for the game above all else. A world famous ex-prize fight champion called Pink to his room one night and offered him $20,000 if he'd "throw" the next day's game, odds for which were 8 to 2 on the Pirates and Pink.

"Think it over, Pink," the gambler cautioned, "If you refuse you'll go back to your hotel room a $2,400 a year player."

"Yes, I'll go back in my room at $2,400 a year player," Pink interrupted, "but I'll be able to sleep tonight."

And that was the end of the bribe attempt.
