Lew Krausse

Born on today's date, Lew Krausse.

"One night in Kansas City, I was discouraged, depressed, everything. So I just raised the window and got my gun, stuck the pistol out the window and shot it twice, just maybe to get something out of my system. Then I pulled the window down and went to sleep."

"The next day (A's owner) Charlie Finley calls me and says 'You crazy son of a bitch, you had the cleaning lady in the Phillips Building (across the street from the hotel) dodging bullets flying around over there'. He made it sound like Baghdad or something. To make matters worse, he said 'You go get that gun and you give it to Ken Harrelson', and Harrelson was crazier than me."
