Quotable!
"The reason baseball has no black managers or general managers is that I truly believe that they may not have some of the necessities to be, let's say, a field manager. Why are black men, or black people, not good swimmers? Because they don't have the buoyancy."
--Al Campanis, soon-to-be-fired Dodgers executive on ABC's Nightline
