      The Quiz was a special guy. Self deprecating with a wonderful sense of humor.

        I'm from Detroit.

        And I really wanted Quiz to win the CYA instead of Willie Hernandez in 1984. He left us far too soon.

          He was my favorite players when I was little. Not sure why, just was.

            I remember reading about the night the Royals gave him when he was ill, and how some of his old teammates cried when they saw him...made me cry, too.

            I also remember an incredible quote from that time...Quiz said, "I never asked, 'Why me?' Why NOT me?"

            Mostly, I remember a guy who crafted an excellent ML career out of a little bit of physical athleticism and a lot of brains and guts, and who was a brilliant, funny, and intelligent man, by all accounts.

              Happy Birthday Quiz!
              I remember trying to throw like you but could only come close while using a whiffle ball.

              You were a pleasure to watch and a great memory growing up.
