Branch Rickey

On this date in 1967, Branch Rickey is elected to the Hall of Fame.

"It occurred to me that if I let myself get trapped in a room with Rickey, there was a strong possibility that he would still have the players I wanted, as well as my promissory note, and I would end up with two guys I never heard of." - Bill Veeck
