Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I didn't get to play in that ( 1933 ) World Series against the Senators because I was a utility infielder. However, I can remember that check we got! It was worth $4800 - which wouldn't be worth anything now. The World Series kept us from being caught up in the Depression. It was a happy feeling. Any ballplayer that has been to the World Series is fortunate." - Bernie James in The San Antonio Express News (Staff Writer Harry Page, Bernie James Interview , 1988)
