Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Remember the first time they sent astronauts into space, and they weren't afraid until they landed in the ocean? That's what happens to some old ballplayers, particularly from our era, particularly African American. When we retire, it's like landing in the middle of the ocean without a rowboat." - Lou Johnson in the Los Angeles Times (Bitter Ending - January 25, 2004)
