Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The Minneapolis Millers 1955 home opener followed a big snowstorm, and there were still banks of snow against the fence in the outfield. Early in the game, a ball was hit down the right field line and went into a snow bank. I went out to take the relay, and I had to wait while George Wilson rooted around in the snow. Finally he came up and fired in a perfect one-hop ball—a snowball that hit the ground and splattered about six feet in front of me." - Wayne Terwilliger
