QUIRK & QUINN
In the Baseball roundup in your Oct. 8 issue, Kathleen Andria mentioned that Jamie Quirk set a record for most home runs (six) in a career for a player whose name begins with the letter Q. This can't be true. What about the exploits of Jack Quinn, who as a pitcher hit eight home runs, two more than Quirk, during his career? Quinn, who pitched for New York and Cincinnati, among others, between 1909 and 1932, also holds the record for most career victories (247) by a player whose name begins with Q.
