Baseball Almanac Top Quote

Major League Debut ] was in Detroit, in a game that I pinch-hit for the pitcher, and we were way behind. He walked me on four straight pitches, and there was one out at the time, and we were behind by a lot of runs, and no chance of winning the ballgame. So I get on first base, and there's one out, and all I want to do is don't make any mistakes out on the basepaths. So Coot Veal got up, and hits a real soft line drive to shortstop, and I don't know what made me do it – I guess the excitement that I was in the big leagues and all the people there and everything combined – and I just broke for second base ... and I got doubled off first base. So it wasn't a very good impression." - Dick McAuliffe (John Cizik, SABR Baseball Biography, Dick McAuliffe , Source )
