Hack Wilson Quotes

"I thought the money would be there forever and I would never come to the end of the rainbow. But what's gone is gone. It was sure fun getting rid of it."

Quotes About Hack Wilson

"Hack Wilson usually played in the outfield, but I'd put him at first base because he wouldn't have as far to stagger to the dugout." - Mike Royko

"He (Hack) hated Hornsby's guts. And he tried to forget his troubles with the boss by drinking. Hornsby helped Wilson's average to nosedive by keeping him on the bench against weak pitchers and then putting him in the lineup when the other teams would pitch their aces." - Billy Connor, Hack's lifelong friend

"I was very close to Wilson, and he always confided in me. And I know for a fact that the one person who did more than anybody to push Hack out of the majors and hit the skids was Rogers Hornsby. Hornsby just couldn't stand all that popularity that Wilson commanded and he picked on poor, old Hack unmercifully." - Billy Connor, Hack's lifelong friend
