Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Baseball Digest - From what you've said, at least two of you consider catching the toughest job in baseball, right? May: Not only the toughest but the most underpaid, too. But I'm glad I'm a catcher, really. It's a position where you can take charge. You're an important man on every play. You're in on ever pitch. I like action and I like the body contact at the plate. Also, it gives you an opportunity to be a leader." - Sportswriter Gordon Forbes in Baseball Digest (September, 1966, 'Tuning In on New Receivers', Page 28)
