Fergie Jenkins

"It's interesting that Mordecai Brown pitched fifty years before I showed up, and yet we stood on the same field. We both hurled a ball toward a batter standing in virtually the same location...... We both won a lot of games for the Cubs; he won the second highest number of games for the club, and I'm number five. We both managed to pitch several shutouts in the Windy City. It's my honor to have been the pitcher who broke one of Three Finger's records. Until I finished my sixth consecutive season of more than 20 wins, in 1972, Mordecai had been the only Cub to do it."

 
Orval Overall

"When it comes to smoothing over internal troubles, and patching up trouble spots on a ball club, Brown is a thirty-three degree diplomat."

 
Joe Tinker

"Old Mordecai Brown is a wonder in every way."

 
Frank Chance

"Let's get one run ahead with Brown in the box, and we are sure to win."

 
Jimmy Archer

"One time I was warming up Brown and Bill Klem, the umpire, pushed me aside. He put a piece of paper the size of a half dollar on the ground. ‘ That's the only target that fellow needs to pitch to', Klem said, and he was right."

 
Ty Cobb

"‘Miner' Brown is one of the greatest pitchers in the history of baseball, and a remarkable fielder at all times."

 
Christy Mathewson

"Brown is my idea of the almost perfect pitcher... It will usually be found at the end of a season, that he has taken part in more key games than any other pitcher in baseball."
