Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Back in those days, there weren't a whole lot of sporting events on TV, but that game ( 09-18-1963 ) was on TV. It seems like everyone in Southern California watched it. No matter where I go, what I do, people recognize the name. People say, 'You're not...' And I say, 'Yeah, I am.'" - Dick Nen in Sandy Koufax: A Lefty's Legacy (Jane Leavy, Harper Perennial Publishers, 03/16/2010, Page 124)

Did you know that Dick Nen is the father of former Major League reliever Robb Nen ? Too easy? Did you know that the 1963 World Champion Dodgers awarded Dick Nen a $1,000 World Series Share due to his 9th-inning game tying home run hit over the right field roof in St. Louis on September 18 (Nen's Major League debut) which tied the game and eventually led them to an important win in the 13th-inning?
