Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I suppose that an outfielder's most embarrassing experience is when he runs in to make a shoestring catch and misses it. You either get it or you don't. If you do, you look good. If you don't, you look terrible. And you generally have to chase the ball to the fence." - Marv Rickert in The Boston Globe (Ted Ashby, Braves' Outfielder Owns a 1-Horse Ranch , 05/10/1949)

Marv Rickert was acquired by Boston on May 11, 1948, in exchange for Danny Litwhiler . The Braves sent Twitch to their Triple-A farm club (Milwaukee Brewers), where he hit .302, drove in 117 runs, and slugged 27 home runs. When their season ended, he went back home, but not for long. On September 29, the Braves left fielder ( Who Was It? ) broke his ankle during a slide into home plate, seven days away from the 1948 World Series , and Rickert was chosen to replace him during the Fall Classic !
