Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"( John ) Wathan's winning hit came off rookie Randy Wiles making his major league debut ( Box Score ). 'That's a shame,' Wathan said sarcastically. 'Just tell him that I grounded into a double play with the bases loaded in my debut.' Wiles was heartbroken but still happy to be in the major leagues. 'I had never seen this many people before,' Wiles said of the 40,000-plus crowd. 'I was just sitting there taking it all in. Then they told me to warm up and I was really nervous.'" - The Cedar Rapids Gazette (Associated Press, Twins Move Within Half-Game of Sox , 08/08/1977, Page 13)

Randall E. Wiles was a Major League Baseball player who pitched for the Chicago White Sox ( 1977 ). Randy, his nickname, pitched five games for the Pale Hose , earning two decisions; a win on August 8, 1977 , with help from a Lamar Johnson walk-off home run, and a loss on August 16, 1977 , after surrendering a walk-off home run to Chris Chambliss .

After the loss, which was the last game Randy ever pitched in the majors, Wiles said, "I feel terrible. I have to shake this off if I want to stay around much longer, but it won't be easy. I feel terrible."
