Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I believe I was talented enough to pitch on a regular basis in the majors. That talent got me there, but it wasn't enough to keep me there, and it wasn't the same in the minors. You didn't really not learn how to pitch there, you simply practiced pitching, all the time, and I think I might have needed more than just more practice." - Arnold Umbach (Baseball Almanac. Letter to the author. 02/21/2003)

Arnold William Umbach was a Major League Baseball player who pitched for the Milwaukee Braves ( 1964 ) and Atlanta Braves ( 1966 ). Arnie, his nickname played for the Braves franchise in two different cities, and made a little uniform number history in both locations:

When Arnold made his debut on October 3, 1964 , he took the field wearing #46 and became the first player in Braves history to ever use that number in a regular season game. After a stint in the minors, he returned, and the franchise had relocated to Atlanta , and when he took the field on April 27, 1966 , he became the first to wear #32 in an ATLANTA Braves uniform.

Did you know that Arnold Umbach appeared in twenty-three big league games, but only won the first game he ever pitched? On October 3, 1964 , Umbach made his Major League debut, pitched 8.1 solid innings, was relieved by future Hall of Famer Warren Spahn (who got a save), and Arnold recorded his first and only win in his first start.
