Gabe Paul

On this date in 1988, long-time baseball executive Gabe Paul passed away at age 88.

"Ok George", Paul said. 'If you want to trade Guidry, I'll agree to it under one condition, that you issue a press release saying that I, Gabe Paul, unalterably oppose the trade and that you, George Steinbrenner, insist on it, and that when - not if - Ron Guidry becomes an outstanding major league pitcher for another team, you take the blame.'" - Sam Moses, Sports Illustrated, January 22, 1979
