Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Think back to a time four months ago. Everyone knew even then that the biggest question about the '87 Phillies was pitching. What nobody knew then was that the answer was named Wally Ritchie. Heck, four months ago, nobody in Philadelphia knew this guy from Lionel Richie. But Wally Ritchie knew he was coming. It was just a matter of time until he let Philadelphia in on the secret.Before he left home to go to spring training this winter', he told me, 'You'll see me in Dodger Stadium on May 29,' said Jay Robertson, the Phillies scout who signed him." - Inquirer Staff Writer Jayson Stark in The Inquirer (05/19/1987, 'Ritchie Just Wanted To Prove He Could Pitch . . . And He Did', Source )
