Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"On June 12, 1880, against Cleveland-occurred (his perfect game) after the pitcher had stayed up all night at a pregraduation party at Brown University, played in an early-morning baseball game between his alma mater and Yale, and skipped lunch to reach Worcester in time for his starting assignment." - Donald Dewey in The Biographical History of Baseball (1995)
