Baseball Almanac Top Quote

" Babe Ruth hit a home run and I wanted to show them how fast I could run (the bases / Bill was on first). So I get into the dugout, and - finally - Babe got into the dugout. He patted me on the head and said, 'Son, you don't have to run like that when The Babe hits one.'" - Bill Werber (AP Wire, 01/22/2009)

William Murray Werber was a Major League Baseball player with the New York Yankees (1930, 1933), Boston Red Sox (1933-1936), Philadelphia Athletics (1937-1938), Cincinnati Reds (1939-1941), and New York Giants (1942). Billy, his nickname, originally attended Berwyn High School, but was kicked out, and told Baseball Almanac, "I got kicked out because I wrote a poem! In English class I turned in this as an assignment, 'A great big eagle flew from the south, With old man Beebe in its mouth, And when he saw he had a fool, He dropped him over the Berwyn School.' Beebe was the principal and he wrote a letter home to my father that said, 'I think your son needs schooling at somewhere other than the Berwyn.'"
