Some wonderful quotations have been made about baseball statistics. Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a few gems:
Baseball statistics are an evolving / ever changing field of research. Tim Wiles, the Director of Research at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, was once asked if they would change the numbers on the plaques after researchers found inaccuracies. Wiles commented, "Some of these numbers acquire a kind of poetry to them. When somebody takes them away or changes them and says we've improved baseball record-keeping, it's someone else's loss."
