Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Lee Stange - thanks to his versatility - got around. First on a basketball scholarship, he went to the University of Nebraska. Then, on a football scholarship, he shifted to Drake. When his knees were injured playing football, he signed a baseball contract with the Washington Senators . It all, of course, wasn't quite as simple as that. Lee grew up in Maywood, a western suburb of Chicago. And on the football team at Maywood Proviso High he was one of two quarterbacks. 'I'd take the ball down the field,' deadpans Stange, 'and then they'd put this other guy in, and he'd take it over the goal line. Let's see, what was his name?' ponders Stange. 'Oh, yes ... Nitschke ... Ray Nitschke! I think he now plays for the Green Bay Packers.' Stange's memory is correct. 'Strictly between ourselves,' whispers Stange, 'Nitschke was 10 times the football player I was.'" - Staff Reporter Roger Birtwell in The Boston Globe (08/08/1967, From Basketball to Football to Baseball , Page 22)
