GROVER CLEVELAND ALEXANDER
"Alex had a car. His wife drove it. Sometimes he couldn't get to the games because he was too drunk. Sometimes he was so lit up you couldn't get him out of the dugout. He was a nice guy, but we couldn't depend on him. He only had to pitch one inning and when he couldn't do that, we had to let him go." (A quote from Eddie Deal about Grover Cleveland Alexander.)
