Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"In late 1959 (I was 15) Willie Jones visited our high school in Vineland, New Jersey. After his short speech in our auditorium, he offered to answer questions. I asked him: 'Who is your favorite baseball player?' He smiled and answered: 'I have twenty-five favorite baseball players. You know them as the Philadelphia Phillies!' - David J. Anderson (Baseball Almanac Email)
