Quote of the day

What we have are good gray ballplayers, playing a good gray game and reading the good gray Wall Street Journal. They have been brainwashed, dry-cleaned and dehydrated!… Wake up the echoes at the Hall of Fame and you will find that baseball’s immortals were a rowdy and raucous group of men who would climb down off their plaques and go rampaging through Cooperstown, taking spoils…. Deplore it if you will, but Grover Cleveland Alexander drunk was a better pitcher than Grover Cleveland Alexander sober.

  1. no wonder Veeck was an owner and a marketing master and not a player. i would think pitching a baseball drunk would be way more difficult than he suggests. But being high, on the other hand does wonders for one’s free throw percentage.
