Quote of the Day (Baseball’s ‘Leo the Lip,’ on His Win-at-All-Costs Rep)

“I never did say that you can't be a nice guy and win. I said that if I was playing third base and my mother rounded third with the winning run, I'd trip her up.”—Longtime baseball manager Leo Durocher (1905-1991), disputing his widely quoted statement that “Nice guys finish last,” quoted in Robert Cantwell, “Leo: Under the Sunset Gun,” Sports Illustrated, February 18, 1963
