Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Today they seem to think the most exciting play in baseball is the homerun but in my book the most exciting play in baseball is the three-bagger or inside-the-park home run. For sheer excitement,I don't think anything can beat when you see that guy go tearing around the bases and come sliding into third or home plate, with the ball coming in on a line from the outfield at the same time. Now that's something to write home about." - Tommy Leach in in The Glory of Their Times: The Story of the Early Days of Baseball Told by the Men Who Played It (Lawrence S. Ritter, Harper Perennial, 04/06/2010, Page 33)
