"He couldn't lick (Ty) Cobb, he weighed only 150 pounds, but he never stopped trying. When Cobb came into the bag and (Kid) Elberfeld was covering, we'd just stand around with our arms folded for the next few minutes and watch the goings-on, until one or both of 'em were thrown out of the game. They didn't call him Tabasco Kid because he was shy." - Clark Griffith in The Washington Post (1944 Clipping)
