Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"As a baseball player, (Jack) McDowell developed 'a nasty reputation as a cruel dude,' earning the nickname Black Jack McDowell. He showed no fear in tongue-lashing Chicago White Sox management and no reluctance to throw at a batter." - Paul Vercammen of Showbiz Today on CNN.com (07/10/2001)
