"We didn't know we were going to be called up [to the major league club]. John Quinn came in at the end of the season and said, 'You, you, you, you and you.' I had been ready to go home. Art Doll, myself, Tom Early, Barney [George Barnicle], and Al Moran. I was scared stiff. The five of us called up together stuck close. I was nervous, but at least we didn't have to worry about playing in front of big crowds. Some of the veterans were real good to us. Al Lopez, Debs Garms and Tony Cuccinello come to mind. I knew Elbie Fletcher from playing against him in high school, so that was a big help. Stengel never said a word to us. He didn't pay much attention to rookies." - Ralph McLeod in National Pastime (Volume 16, 1996, Dick Thompson)
