Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I remember trotting back towards the infield carrying the ball for about half way and then tossed it towards the pitchers mound. (How I wished many times I had kept it.) At no time did I lose possession of the ball." - Sam Rice (Letter to the Hall of Fame written about the 1925 World Series)
