"After the 1980 season, (Earl) Williams wrote to 10 major league teams in a failed effort to find a spot on a roster. 'Time and experience have certainly taught me that baseball is more than a game of numbers,' he wrote. 'But statistics do make an unbiased statement. Why, then, am I out of baseball? I think you know. In a word: controversy.'" - Columnist Bruce Weber in The New York Times (02/01/2013, 'Earl Williams, Baseball Slugger, Dies at 64', Source )
