Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I took and option to purchase (Oral) Hildebrand for $25,000 after seeing him work in only one game. He was devoting his energies then to speed, and I was impressed with it. Today he has, I believe, the finest change of pace in the American League." - Cleveland Indians General Manager Billy Evans in Baseball Magazine (August 1933)
