Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Woodeshick, Richards, and pitching coach Cot Deal drilled endlessly on fielding fundementals and techniques. Woodeshick knew it was now or never.'I've got to' he (Woodeshick) said, when asked whether he liked the extra work the coaches were putting him through. 'I've had more individual attention paid to me in this camp than all other years I've been up with major league clubs. I know that it's this time or forget it.'" - Author Robert Reed in Colt .45's, A Six Gun Salute (Golf Publishing, 08/25/1999)
