Quotable!
"Every time we make trouble, ol' George flies out here from another part of the country and gets in our way. Maybe we should make a lot of trouble, so he'll keep flying out here. Sooner or later, his plane's gonna crash."
--Dock Ellis, New York Yankees pitcher on owner George Steinbrenner
