Kenesaw Mountain Landis
Why should God wish to take a thoroughbred like Matty so soon, and leave some others down here that could well be spared?
Landis quotes
What about the Satchel Paiges of the future? Will they be playing in the big leagues? The question becomes more pressing yearly. It has been tossed into old Judge Landis' lap more than once.
