Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (Paul Splittorff) wasn't blessed with a 100-mph fastball, he wasn't blessed with a Bert Blyleven curve, he wasn't blessed with a tremendous changeup, but he was blessed a good brain. He knew how to pitch. He was blessed with a big heart and put it all on the line" - Teammate and Hall of Famer George Brett on MLB.com (Dick Kaegel, 05/25/11, 'Former Royals lefty, broadcaster Splittorff dies, Source )
