Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Bob 'Buck' Rodgers was the heart-and-soul catcher for the Los Angeles Angels from their inception until their move to Anaheim to become the California Angels in 1965. He then finished his career in Anaheim after five more seasons. One of owner Gene Autrey's favorites, Rodgers was called back to skipper the club in 1991 after serving successfully at the helm in Milwaukee and Montreal. In a dozen years as a manager, Rodgers picked up more than 750 wins." - Columnist Mike Blake in Baseball Digest (December 1995, Mike Blake, 'Stars of the 1980s Recall Some Special Baseball Moments', Page 55)
