Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"And, seemingly overnight, Eddie Joost became a home run hitter. How did that happen? 'Two things. One, I started wearing glasses. The wire frame got in my line of vision, so to pick up the ball I had to open my stance more. Second, for years I had worked winters for that meatpacker in San Francisco. I cut meat and the drivers loaded it on the trucks. In 1944, I worked as a driver. Now I'm loading the stuff on the trucks. I got stronger lifting whole lambs and sides of beef.' A tip from Ted Williams helped, too. 'He told me I got out in front too much; put my weight on my back foot, and I wouldn't stride too soon or over-stride. He was right.'" - Sportswriter Normal L. Macht in Baseball Digest (June 2002, 'Turn Back the Clock')
