When you talk about the Negro League, it was a feeding ground for the major leagues. I don’t know that I would have been in the big leagues if I had not had the experience of playing in the Negro League. Some people say, “Well, what class of ball would you put it at?” And I would say that the Negro League probably was, I would say a high A ball. I had the experience of playing in that league for — I don’t know — a couple of months. But so many other players — Ernie Banks played there, and he went from there to the major leagues. Gene Baker did the same thing. Jackie Robinson I think stayed in the minor leagues for a year-and-a-half. Campanella, Don Newcombe, all these guys came through that league to get to the big leagues. And they were polished. They knew how to play the game. I knew, I learned an awful lot from playing in that league, simply because of the fact I played with the older players, players that knew how to play the game, and all of those things rubbed off on me. I knew exactly what I wanted to do, and how I did, when the situation came about.
