?Chicago Cub Coach Joe Becker, reminiscing about Erv Palica, the old Dodger pitcher: "He had so many pitches, the catcher had to take off his mitt to give the sign."
? Bud Grant, Minnesota Viking head coach, after allowing a rookie quarterback to switch to end: "They can play anything they want—except coach."
