Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"In 1891 (Wilbert) Robinson played for Baltimore in the American Association, which became Baltimore in the National League when the American Association folded. The Old Orioles; the most famous team of their time. Joe Kelley , Willie Keeler , Steve Brodie , Dan Brouthers , Sadie McMahon , Heinie Reitz , John McGraw . McGraw and Robinson were the best of friends, an odd couple; McGraw was tough, pugnacious, sensitive, and widely hated; Robinson was easy-going, gregarious, affectionate, and much beloved - but just as tough as McGraw on the field. Defying his body type, Robinson was agile and surprisingly fast, but had no power." - Author Bill James in The New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract (Bill James, Free Press Publishing, 100 Greatest Catchers. #86. Wilbert Robinson , 06/13/2003, Page 423)
