„Me like hot weather, veree hot. I no run fast cold weather. No get warm in cold. No get warm, no play gut. You see.“

—  Roberto Clemente Puerto Rican baseball player 1934 - 1972
Baseball-related, <big><big>1950s</big></big>, <big>1955</big>, Context: "I no play so gut yet," the Puerto Rican star tried to explain yesterday. "Me like hot weather, veree hot. I no run fast cold weather. No get warm in cold. No get warm, no play gut. You see." Clemente likes Forbes Field and Connie Mack Stadium the best of all the parks he's played in but has a strong dislike for Ebbets Field and the Polo Grounds because of the crazy bounces the balls take as they ricochet off the walls. As quoted and paraphrased in "The Scoreboard" https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=bkEqAAAAIBAJ&sjid=000EAAAAIBAJ&pg=4731,2918286 by Les Biederman, in The Pittsburgh Press (Friday, June 10, 1955), p. 30
