Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Roy (McMillan) had an interesting style in the way he played shortstop. Instead of going in a straight line for a ball when it was hit his way, Roy would circle in on the ball. It was unique. To me it reminds me of the way shortstops play the ball today when they are playing on an artificial surface. Maybe Roy was just ahead of his time." - Tony Kubek Picks 11 Best Shortstops He's Ever Seen (Baseball Digest, August 1988)
