Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The strange case of Ramon Monzant took on a bright green hue today. Monzant has turned in his strike placard and take up the cudgels of the anti-tax fanatics. The San Francisco Giants pitcher, a fugitive from spring training camp holed out in Venezuela, has decided he would like to play major league baseball this season. The right-hander, who compiled an 8-11 record in the 1958 campaign, said Monday the Giants could have his services, if they meet his salary demands. Ramon recently said he was fed up with baseball, having already wasted six unprofitable years in this country's favorite pastime, and was tossing away his resin bag. No amount of money, he said, could force him to reconsider his retirement plans. The tempestuous Latin now wants $12,000 with $5,000 of that to be sent to him in advance - tax free!" - The Escanaba Daily Press (March 17, 1959, 'Ramon Monzant Changes Mind,' Page 10)
