Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"'C'mon, Frank,' he (Norm Larker) complained to umpire Secory, 'the guy's (Lew Burdette) throwing spitters.' 'Naah,' replied Secory, 'them were sinkers.' 'Sinkers!' replied Larker. 'My foot! One of them sinkers just splashed me in the right eye!'" - Sportswriter Phil Pepe in The New York Daily News (Baseball Digest, July 1975)
