From the 1974 Reds Media Guide:

“Perez especially likes to hit at Wrigley Field in Chicago.  He hit three homers at Wrigley and has 19 lifetime in the Windy City.  ‘If I play here (Wrigley) all time, Babe Ruth’s records mean nothing,’ Tony jested last June after hitting two off Milt Pappas.  ‘I like this park.  I swing easy here.  Lot of guys know how wind carry ball out real easy, but they overswing and pop up.  I know if you hit ball good without swinging hard, it go out easily.'”

For correctly answering, @amyeditress has been randomly selected as this week’s winner.  She’ll get a brand new Better Off Red limited edition T-shirt and a pair of Magic Red Shoelaces (if I have any left)…I’m also going to throw in a copy of that very 1974 Reds Media Guide.

What, you didn’t win?  No worries, we’ll do it again next week.
