Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Bob Lemon was one of the best hitting pitchers, as he first came up to the big leagues as an infielder/outfielder. However, his pitching stints in Hawaii during World War II kept his pitching arm in shape and helped him get noticed as a pitcher." - Bob Feller in the Little Black Book of Baseball Wisdom (2001)
