by Pee Wee
“ If I had my career
to play over, one thing I'd do differently is swing more. Those 1,200
walks I got... nobody remembers them."
"Thinking about the things that happened,
I don't know any other ballplayer who could have done what he did.
To be able to hit with
everybody yelling at him. He had to block all that out, block out
everything but this ball that is coming in at a hundred miles an hour.
To do what he did has got to be the most tremendous thing I've ever
seen in sports."
-- on the performance of his teammate, Jackie Robinson
Quote about Pee Wee
“He loved the Dodgers, he always respected
the Dodgers and the people who owned the Dodgers."
-- Dodgers pitcher Don Newcombe
