"[Ed]Ricks finally quit in 1979. He had some arm problems, but that wasn't really it. He was tired more than anything else. Tired of being so close for so long and not making it. 'I decided to give it up because it seemed like I wasn't going anywhere,' he said....Then he heard about the senior league. In some ways he was like all the others who came back. But for him it was a little different. Ricks wasn't here to relive the glory of the old days. What glory? Ricks was here to give it one more try."

-- from Extra Innings: A Season in the Senior League by David Whitford, 225
