Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (Johnny Klippstein) passed away just after the Cubs scored that fifth run (in 11th inning of Game 3 of the 2003 NLCS). He was listening to the game as we had it on the TV at his bedside, clutching my hand and blinking to let us know he was aware of what was going on. He stuck out one more victory." - John Klippstein, Jr. (October 11, 2003)
