Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"But with the Tigers holding a commanding 9-3 lead entering the bottom of the ninth, and aging star left fielder Hank Greenberg ailing, (Ed) Mierkowicz suddenly found himself trotting out of the dugout and onto the Wrigley Field grass. Since making his big league debut five weeks before, he played in only 10 games. Mierkowicz, who idolized Greenberg as a boy in Wyandotte, Mich., ran toward Wrigley's ivy-covered walls. He remembered his knees were shaking. The Cubs' first batter in the bottom of the ninth, Roy Hughes , stepped in and promptly cracked one toward left field. It dropped in front of Mierkowicz, who fielded it cleanly and tossed it back to the infield." - Chicago Tribune Staff Writer Patrick M. O'Connell (02/24/16, A Tiger's tale: Sole survivor of Cubs' last Series, 71 years ago , Source )
