"Being elected to the Hall of Fame doesn't make me less bitter (about being denied the opportunity to play in the major leagues). I wanted so much to make the majors. It still presses my mind. The Hall of Fame is the greatest honor a player can receive, and I'm thankful they honored me. But I never made no money and I'm just surviving."
