Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Baseball players get labels in a hurry, and often those labels last a career. Mike Jorgensen has earned the label as one of the best defensive first baseman in baseball and that's not too bad of a brand to carry. But that title sometimes leads to the assumption that Jorgensen isn't a strong hitter. That's an image the Arlington resident is out to shed." - Irving Daily News (04/04/1979, 'Jorgy job hunting', Page 18)
