John J. McGraw says: “Frank Chance, in my opinion, is easily entitled to the place as All-National League first baseman. He was manager of the Cubs in the days of our great rivalry. Those were tough, fighting days—every game a scrapping event. There was no weakening or quitting of a team on either side, Frank Chance least of them all. He was always there with the goods as a hitter, a fielder and a base runner. Frank Chance knew baseball from A to Z. There have been mighty few such combinations as Evers, Tinker and Chance.”
