Quotes We Like: Bad BaseballPosted: August 23, 2010
According to the Troy, N.Y. Record’s reporter at a Troy Trojans-Albany Senators game, Aug. 15, 1910:
“Scramble the yolks of four eggs in a quart of mucilage, add a bottle of scarlet ink and some nice green-roofed paste and fry slowly over a fire of green wood and season with mock turtle soup and catsup, and the result would give some idea of the kind of baseball which let the Albany club win the opening game of the present series on the local grounds.”
And I thought Cubs fans were bitter.
