Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Jesse (Haines) found it necessary to hide his uniform in a corncrib and on playing days, carry it to a convenient cornfield where he shed his overalls in favor of wool stockings, spiked shoes, and gaudily colored uniform. After the game he would return to the spot to change his clothing again, for Jesse's parents frowned on Sunday baseball." - Reporter Harry Brundidge in St. Louis Star (1929)
