Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (Bobo Osborne) was a power hitter who liked to pull the ball, but he could hit it the other way, too. He was a big fella, but he could move and he could run. He was a consummate baseball player who could play anywhere and do a lot of things well." - Tim Osborne (son) in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (04/17/2011, Rick Badie, 'Larry "Bo" Osborne, 75, ex-big-league player, scout', Source )
