Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I don't think it (being the only player ever traded for Pete Rose ) was much of a highlight for me and I don't think it was a highlight for Pete either." - Tom Lawless in The Los Angeles Times (10/22/1987, Ross Newhan)

Did you know that Tom Lawless, who only hit two regular-season home runs his entire Major League career, hit an incredibly dramatic go-ahead three run home run during Game 4 of the 1987 World Series ? Lawless told reporters in the locker room after the game, "When it went over the wall, I thought, 'Holy cow, it went out.' The ball went out and I went blank for a second. It went out. I don't remember flipping the bat."
