Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Frank) Quilici managed to land a spot on the; playing time, on the other hand, was at a premium because Minnesota also brought up future Hall of Famer Rod Carew , who took over the second base job and went on to win Rookie of the Year honors. Quilici played in only 23 games with the Twins (.105 batting average in 19 at-bats) and another 11 at Triple-A (.265 batting average in 34 at-bats). Spending so much time on the bench gave Quilici time to think, and he realized that he needed to be a lot more like the famous stripper Gypsy Rose Lee to get more playing time—very versatile. He played all over the infield in 1968, including 48 games at second base, 40 at third, and six at shortstop; he even played one inning at first base. That versatility helped his career take off—he played in 97 games, a career high to that point. His hitting also improved, thanks to a tip from Twins coach Billy Martin during spring training that resulted in a career-best .245 batting average. Quilici also hit his first major-league home run, a solo shot off the Oakland A’s Jim Nash in a 4-3 Twins victory on the last day of the season ( Box Score )." - Baseball Historian Norm King (SABR Baseball Biography, Frank Quilici , Source )
