Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"My first at-bat was a disaster. I was a really good bunter. My knees were shaking so bad, I could hardly stand up. They sent me in to bunt the person over from second to third and I popped the damn thing up to the catcher. That was very disastrous for me." - Buddy Hicks in The Examiner (Nick Diunte, 07/07/2015, 'Buddy Hicks, former Detroit Tigers infielder, passes away at 87', Source )
