Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The Robins were a rambunctious club. (Ivy) Olson, slated to be a reserve, was so competitive a player that he even got angry in practice sessions during spring training; he was so annoyed by an umpire's call in an intrasquad game that he argued furiously, threw sand all over the ump and was ejected. From and intrasquad game. Stengel loved that, although Casey had trouble of his own with bad tempers that season." - Author Robert W. Creamer in Stengel: His Life and Times (University of Nebraska Press, 03/01/1996, Page 105)
