"The dropping of George McQuillan by the Pirates has broken up one of the greatest quartets ever carried by a baseball club. The big pitcher possesses a beautiful lyric tenor-voice. He gathered the other three singers about him tonight just before they started for the train and a farewell selection was rendered. The adieus were said and the Pirate choir was reduced to a trio composed of ( Al ) Mamaux , ( Zip ) Collins and ( Doc ) Doc Johnston ." - Sports Writer Ed. F. Balinger in The Pittsburgh Daily Post (August 21, 1915, 'Buccaneer Bingles and Bunts,' Page 13)

On May 31, 2008 , Brad Ziegler made his Major League debut, then went on to pitch thirty-nine scorless innings - a new record for most scoreless innings pitched from the start of a career . The previous record was set 101 years earlier, by George McQuinn, who made his debut on May 8, 1907, then pitched twenty-five scorless innings - a record that remains intact in the National League still to this day.

Did you know that George McQuillan once helped New York detectives break-up a gang of "New York swindlers" that made big news in 1915? The Pittsburgh Post wrote, "George A. McQuillan, who pitches effectively for the Pittsburgh Pirates, could quit baseball at any time and take a position with a big detective agency if he so desired, but Big Mac says he has no desire for the Sherlock Holmes job."
