Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Early in the season, Seattle was getting hitting but no pitching. Then the pitching came and the hitting went pffft. 'The only thing we led baseball in was team meetings,' says Zisk. 'It was a joke with the rest of the clubs. Meeting after meeting. Like the kid who gets a chocolate sundae every day, after a while they sort of lose their effect.'" - Sports Writer E.M. Swift in Sports Illustrated (May 18, 1981, 'At Home In The Dome Designated Hitter Richie Zisk zaps 'em in the cozy confines of Seattle's ball park', Source )
