"To Patsy Tebeau, baseball was, and should be, a blood sport. He said to a reporter in 1913, 'Show me a ball club out there fighting every inch of the way, and I'll show you a team that is after the pennant. We never thought of greeting our opponents. Our idea was to get out there and lick 'em, and lick 'em good and quick. I can see some guy sliding back to first with me playing the bag and getting his head bumped with the ball. Think I'd apologize? Not Patsy Tebeau. Get your mutt out of the way and you won't get hurt would be more like it.'" - Author David L Fleitz in Rowdy Patsy Tebeau and the Cleveland Spiders: Fighting to the Bottom of Baseball, 1887-1899 (McFarland & Company, 05/08/2017, Page 202)
