Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Another big reason is the addition to the club of a scholarly 'old-pro' by the name of Nick Testa. Whether it be class "A" or major league, in the cellar or in first place, a team with Testa on the roster suddenly shows new 'life.' The gutty New York native has been 'the route' - from old class 'D' clubs to the Majors, from the Caribbean to Japan - and what he doesn't know about baseball wouldn't take up much space in a thimble. Testa, a catcher by trade, is in his 18th year of organized ball. His enthusiasm about the game makes it hard to believe he is 34 years old. Those who have witnessed his hustle at Moana Stadium claim he acts and moves like an 18-year-old rookie; except when he has a bat in his hands or unleashes a rifle shot throw to second base - then you know he's been around." - The Nevada State Journal (05-21-1963, Old Pro Nick Testa Sparks Silver Sox Improvement , Page 11)
