Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"As the story goes, the fleet-footed outfielder was called to catch for Syracuse in a minor league game in 1877. After he got behind the plate, a batter tipped back a pitch into (Pete) Hotaling's eye. A month later the bruised outfielder was again asked to catch. Hotaling was taunted as a coward as he took his place behind the plate wearing the first catcher's mask." - Baseball: The Biographical Encyclopedia (Total/Sports Illustrated, 2000)
