Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"In 1940 I played 80 games for the Philadelphia A's. Somehow I got stigmatism in my left eye and was sent to Fort Worth club in the Texas League where I had a good year and was sold to Minneapolis of the American Association." - Bill Lillard (Autobiography, Courtesy of Bonnie Lee Lillard, Daughter of Bill Lillard, Received via email)
