Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Show (the name rhymes with cow) was known as a highly intelligent, articulate man with broad interests that ranged from physics -- his major in college -- to politics to economics to music. 'Eric didn't fit the mold of the typical ballplayer,' said Tim Flannery , a former Padre teammate of Show's. 'Most ballplayers were like me then; we had tunnel vision. We weren't interested in those other things.'" - Sportswriter Ira Berkow in The New York Times (03/27/1994, 'Eric Show's Solitary Life, and Death', Source )
