"Those days were very tough, … All my teammates are white and it was a different time. At times when we traveled, I couldn't go out to eat with the white players; I had to wait until someone brought something out to the bus. We couldn't stay in the same hotels or live in a different neighborhood.”

– Juan Marichal (Dominican), baseball player, member of Baseball Hall of Fame.
