BY TRAYNOR
"I ran halfway back to Somerville."
-- after being rejected by the Braves

"Nobody taught me how to play third base….The way I learned was simply to tackle each situation as it arose and master it before moving on to something else. I think I learned more about playing third base in the morning bull sessions in the hotel lobby than I did out on the field."

ABOUT TRAYNOR
"Traynor had feet like violin cases."
-- Ed Barrow, Red Sox Scout

"He had the quickest hands and the quickest arms of any third baseman I ever saw."
-- Charly Grimm, fellow teammate

"He was a mechanically perfect third baseman, a man of intellectual worth on the field of play."
-- Branch Rickey, when Traynor was inducted to the National Baseball Hall of Fame

"If I had to pick the greatest team player in baseball today-and I have some of the greats on my own club-I would have to pick Pie Traynor."
-- John McGraw, manager of the New York Giants
