Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Despite those impressive Schulte stats, Wildfire never got much publicity for his talents. He was always upstaged by Hall of Famers - the double play combo Tinkers, Evers and Chance. So instead Wildfire will go down in the history books as the only Major League player with a nickname taken from his pet horse and one of the first pro ball players to receive a big perk. 'In 1911 when he hit the 20 homers, doubles and triples, he was given a car. It was something unusual for 1911 ,' said Alter (Peter Alter, Chicago Historical Society)." - Sarah Schulte on abc7chicago.com (10/08/2003)
