Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"It wasn't as though the Red Sox needed a left fielder, but Sheridan had somehow caught the eye of the Red Sox and they worked out a way to bring him into the Red Sox organization. A later issue of The Sporting News reported rumors that the signing might presage Dom DiMaggio's departure from the Red Sox. Sheridan himself says, 'I never did figure out why they signed me, because they had five established big league players to start with. We ended up in a playoff for the pennant.' Sheridan went to spring training with the big league ball club. He opened the season with the big league club, renting an apartment in Boston for himself, his wife, and their daughter and infant son. About a week after they moved in, in early May, he was optioned back to the Coast League, to Seattle. With ( Ted ) Williams , DiMaggio's , ( Stan ) Spence , ( Sam ) Mele , and ( Wally ) Moses Joe McCarthy , and Sheridan said that McCarthy had only spoken three words to him all spring: 'Nice going, kid' after he’d thrown out Dom DiMaggio's taking a big turn at first base during an intrasquad game." - Baseball Historian Bill Nowlin (SABR BASEBALL BIOGRAPHY PROJECT, "Neill Sheridan", Source )

Did you know that Neill Sheridan hit a home run 613.8 feet, as legend has it, for the Sacramento Solons (Pacific Coast League) in 1953? San Francisco Chronicle Staff Writer John Shea wrote, "According to accounts in the Sacramento Bee and Sacramento Union, a man said he had found the ball in the back seat of his car with the rear window smashed. A parking lot employee claimed to have heard glass break at the time of the homer. The Solons measured the distance at 620 feet and hired a local surveying company for a more precise reading: 613.8 feet."
