  • Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner passed away at his home in Rancho Mirage.  He was 91 years old.  RIP, Ralph.  Via a story at the Baseball Hall of Fame.  Here are some quotes from Kiner:
“I got to Forbes Field and saw it was 406 feet to left-center with a 30-foot scoreboard, and I thought: ‘I’m going to kill that scout who signed me.’” 
“Someone asked me how come I signed up with the Mets (as a broadcaster), since they weren’t going to win many games. I said: ‘I’ve got a lot of experience with losing.’”
“I think we have a ball club that can really play and execute the game of baseball and bring to you fans… you, each and every one of you, you deserve a World Championship.”
“I think I’ll be more relaxed coming into this year,” said the 27-year-old. “I think last year I was a little more on edge. (Now) I’ll be able to have a little more fun and be on the field with guys I’m more familiar with.”
