"Any woman who attempts to dictate the policy of a baseball club is flirting with serious trouble. Professional baseball is so complicated that it is difficult for anyone, much less a woman, to get the inns and outs of it and know the correct way to manage a club. It is bad enough for a man to be mixed up in this kind of work." - on Cardinals owner Helene Hathaway Britton
