Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"You have two hemispheres in your brain - a left and a right side. The left side controls the right side of your body and the right side controls the left half. It's a fact. Therefore, left-handed pitchers are the only people in their right minds." - Bill Lee in Boston Red Sox and the Meaning of Life (Mark Rucker, MVP Books, 05/03/2009, Page 163)
